Author Notes

This particular soup came about because of my husband's love for portobello; they end up in our pastas, in our salads, appetizers, etc... Thanks to Paula Deen, one night I saw her prepping a recipe for a mushroom soup and, after a couple of tweaks, this was the result. We love it and prepare it frequently. —Diethood
