I made this, but followed others suggestions. I thickened the base a bit with some cornstarch mixed with warm chicken broth. I didn't use water at all...I had some chicken broth left over from a boiled chicken and used that instead. I added the red pepper flakes to add some heat, salt and pepper to taste, a carrot, a stalk of celery and some mushrooms. And 1 full cup of whipping cream, extra broth and some white wine too. Topped it with grated parmesan cheese like they do in the Italian restaurant. It was very good, much more hearty than what the restaurant serves. My husband scored it a 9 out of 10, so I guess we will be having it again! I'm going to try to freeze the extra soup to be served another time. This is a lot of soup for 2 people. Crumbled bacon might be a nice addition.
