    This was so good when you made it for us that we had to make it for Colleen’s family last Thanksgiving, and it was the hit of the dinner! Really, really good.

    I’m a huge tomato soup fan, but this recipe is undoubtedly the best I’ve ever had. It definitely was the big hit last Thanksgiving — my almost-3year-old nephew flipped over it.
