Years ago, I went to a quaint little Italian restaurant in Dallas for a business luncheon. Although I wanted a big combination plate of manicotti and cannelloni, I knew I’d need a nap afterwards, and bosses frown upon workplace nap time. (Why? It’s so necessary!) Rather than risk being fired, I opted for a cup of cream of mushroom soup and salad as my lunch. Never in my life have I had a better soup. Never. Ever.
I asked Zee, the manager for the recipe and he declined. But he did tell me the two secret ingredients that made his cream of mushroom soup so good…
I went home and began to experiment. Years later, I am still making this same recipe and friends and family love it!!! Thank you, Zee, for telling me the secret ingredients….
