Author's Comments

This soup can also be served with the cheese on the soup, and bread on the side, if your soup bowls are not oven-safe. It's wonderful either way!

The type of white wine does not really matter -- it only adds a light flavor to the soup. We even did this with a blush -- White Zinfandel -- with excellent results!
