This is my quick go to soup in the winter months. I always keep these ingredients in the pantry. I used to stop on the way home from work and buy a loaf of hot French bread to eat it with. When I got home I would throw it all together and after it cooked for about 18 min., I added the cheese and milk, turned off the heat, covered it with a plate and hopped in the shower while the cheese melted and it was ready to eat within 1/2 hour of getting home. Got this out of the Quick Cooking premiere issue 1998)

I don't add the hot sauce (hot enough for me w/Rotel) or parsley.
