Easy Pasta Fagioli Soup

pasta fagioli soup

I absolutely love pasta fagioli soup. My family does too and after the blizzard that we all went through a few days ago, it was the number one request for dinner. This soup is super yummy and comes together for a hearty, healthy and filling family meal in around 30 minutes. There is nothing like warming up to a bowl of delicious homemade soup after shoveling heavy wet fallen snow. I think you will enjoy this one too. Serve it up with a nice crusty baguette. I promise, you might find yourself licking the bowl after!

Giveaways Main Dishes Recipes

Giveaway: Wonderbag + Butternut Squash and Carrot Curry Soup

Every once in a while, you come across a new product that can revolutionize the way we cook.

A few weeks ago, I received a Wonderbag in the mail. I was thrilled. The Wonderbag promised slow cooker results without any need for electricity or gas. Oh my goodness, as a family that uses our crock pot a few times a week in the winter, I had to try it!

Bruschetta Quiche

Finally, the chickens have returned to laying eggs on a regular basis. This is how I know spring is surely here! This week I found myself needing to use up eggs. My all time favorite way to use up eggs is to make quiche. Try serving this lighter variety quiche with a salad or a cup of soup. Either way, it’s delicious!

Homemade Mushroom and Rice Soup

I’ve been under the weather this past week and trying to resume eating. I haven’t really eaten anything in days and have decided to ease back into it with soups. I have always loved soups and this past week, I was inspired by Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers‘ link up to this week’s blog hop. I had the strength to gather what I needed at the grocery store to create a hearty, delicious soup that seemed to feel just right in my empty belly.

Cheese Tortellini and Basil Bake

Yesterday, was one of those crazy, busy days and there did not seem to be enough time in the day. The majority of our day was occupied by a trip up to Boston. What should have been a 4 hour trip turned into a 7 hour ordeal. Exhausted, I came home and crashed. My son woke me up at 5:20pm. It was dark. I still had chicken chores to do and dinner to make. Days like that always call for easy dishes. I was craving comfort food and my Cheese Tortellini and Basil Bake was just what the doctor ordered!

Chicken Curry and Rice Soup

I have a deep love for Indian food. When we go out to eat it is almost always one of my favorite places to go. Last night, I was craving Indian food, but I was so wiped out from a most exhausting week that I was too tired to make the trip. So I decided to whip up my own version of a curry infused soup. My recipe did not disappoint. It was a bit spicy, savory, and delicious.  My son even asked for seconds!
