Chicken Alfredo Soup

I made this on our first cooler day this past week--80's is soup weather, right??? Very yummy and easy to make. This will become a 'regular' this winter.

Chicken Alfredo Soup

  1. The impossible-to-dress season: chilly in the morning and hot by late afternoon!

    I love chicken alfredo but have never had it in a soup.
