Yummmmm

Zuppa Toscana ala Olive Garden!
I haven't made that in the longest time... DH doesn't care for it,
"it's creamy" (please 10 year whinny little BRAT boys voice here )
I use to make a half batch and share it with my my Mom when she lived closer to us (12 miles versus almost 700)

Question:
If I used whole milk and yukon golds rather than heavy cream and russets,
would that freeze okay ya think?

I personally think heavy cream will freeze better than milk, and yukons over russets. I sympathize with the 10-year-old voice, SIL.... no creamy stuff, no cheesy stuff. Don't know how our DD stands it since she always loved both.

If you plan on freezing this wonderful soup, use white beans instead of any kind of potatoes. I prefer it with white beans myself, but since I don't do carbs right now, itty bitty little white potatoes are easier to fish out of my soup than beans. I detest frozen potatoes. ick. A can of evaporated milk is an ok replacement for the cream, but it's just not special without the dairy imo. Geeze, I adore this soup! It was killer tonight!

It got my vote, and NOT because I am married to her!

Made bachelor surprise with strips of sirloin steak instead of ground beef. It was quite tasty.
