I know it is summer and it might be a little to warm for soup, but in an effort to empty the freezer the chicken broth had to be used. It was K's birthday yesterday and I invited one of our friends over for dinner, so that meant I had to come up with something to eat. We love this soup at Olive Garden and I've made it before and had almost all the ingredients so this is what we are eating! This recipe comes from my friend Terra, she posted it on Facebook one night and I had to make it! Thanks Terra!
