Italian Style Soup
I made this the other night and we have a ton of leftovers. It’s easy to modify to your taste, too. It’s just a heartier twist on tomato soup with Italian seasonings. Sometimes, to break through boredom with meal-planning, it’s good to mix it up a bit. And, this time of year, I love to have soup leftovers or enough to freeze for a healthy meal on a busy night.
