The Saturday Simmer: Pasta soup recipes
It's said that bacon makes everything better, but when it comes to soup, a little bit of pasta makes everything better. You can use any shape, any size from tiny ditallini to the largest noodles (as evidence by this great lasagna soup, from Framed Cooks), mix and match from your leftover pasta jar. Just a handful of pasta will help thicken and enrich vegetable soups, create a satisfying mouth feel without any meat at all, and stretch a small amount of soup into a meal for a crowd.
Lots of pasta soup recipes caught my eye this week:
Lemony soup with white beans, kale, and pasta, from Flourishing Foodie
Lasagna soup, from Framed Cooks
Sausage and bean soup with pasta, from The Italian Dish
Mediterranean chicken, bean and pasta soup, from Cookin' Canuck
Sopa de pollo y pasta, from My Colombian Recipes
Beef Florentine pasta soup with basil and cream, from Picky Palate
Turkey Italian sausage, kale, and pasta soup, from For the Love of Cooking
