FF or 2% mozzarella cheese, shredded

Makes approximately 8 1-cup servings
This is a little bit lighter version of the original recipe, add whatever you family likes, to make it taste like sausage is in there add 2 tsp sage, or if you are not calorie watching then go ahead and add some Italian sausage makes it even yummier! Please note for a thicker soup do not use all the chicken broth I sometimes use more italian seasoning also
