"Coming from a Northern Italian family, this recipe has been handed down for generations. It's a great family dish that is easy to make. We dip bell peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, and chunks of Italian bread in this soup!"
Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Saute garlic and anchovies until the garlic has mellowed, about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the mushroom soup, cream, and half and half; turn heat to low and cook for 45 minutes, making sure the mixture does not boil.
