When temperatures get cold the only thing I want is a big bowl of hot soup. Soup is my #1 comfort food. And it’s also the best because the leftovers are perfect for lunch for a few days after.

And because most soup recipes make a lot, they’re also perfect to freeze for an easy meal later.

You may know this pasta fagioli soup from Olive Garden. I have never had it so I can’t say if it’s a copycat or not but I do know that this soup is AMAZING. The “secret” ingredient is a jar of spaghetti sauce and trust me when I say that it totally makes this soup crazy delicious.

The directions say to let the soup simmer for at least 30 minutes and please actually do that. The flavor develops into this rich and almost creamy like soup while it simmers. It really is so yummy, so promise me you will let it simmer for the full 30 minutes!

Spend that 30 minutes to continue binge watching (so guilty here!) your favorite Netflix show. Or do something more fun and practical like break up fights between your two oldest kids, pick up all the dishes from the kitchen floor because your 1 year old likes to empty the cabinets, or clean up the chocolate milk that my 3 year old has spilled for the 3rd time in one day. Yes, this is my life people. Real life 🙂

Serve this pasta fagioli soup with some garlic bread because dipping the bread into the hearty broth is heaven. I will usually buy a bag of frozen pre-cooked crusty French rolls and then heat them in the oven for 10 minutes.

They are crispy on the outside but soft in the center. Perfect for dipping into this soup. Or of you want to get real fancy then try my soft & fluffy 1 hour rollsto dip into this soup. Just thinking about that combo has my mouth watering and now I’m starving!
