Ahhh…… Soup. Warm, filling and simply delicious in all its many forms. You can scoop it into a bowl and sit snuggled on the couch with t.v remote in hand watching some sort of drama or you can dress it up for a date night with the hubby or boyfriend. Soup is so versatile that you can do anything with it and it fits all sorts of styles.
You can have it for brunch, lunch, dinner or for a midnight snack. Either way, you have it, It turns out perfect every time. In this recipe, I pair roasted vegetables with herbs and pasta for a delectable soup everyone will enjoy.
