Project Description

There is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day! Soup is comfort when you are not feeling under the weather.  This is packed full of veggies and warmth that will be the ultimate comfort food.

My favorite way to serve it is with a grilled cheese sandwich or a nice bread roll so you have something to dip in the flavorful broth.  This works great on the stove top or in the crockpot for those days you need to come home to a meal ready.

  6. Once soup is done, place a spoonful of pasta in bottom of bowl followed by soup.

Notes

  • It is reccomended you don’t add the pasta until you are ready to eat the soup. The pasta will swell and soak up all the broth. The nice thing about doing it this way is each person can eat it with their desired amount of pasta.
