I'm a little early with my soup post today as I actually made the soup Friday night. My husband's brother and his wife host a fall get together for the siblings. She usually likes to offer a soup to start the meal, so I volunteered to make the soup. I made the cheater Chicken and Dumpling soup that I posted here and I tried out another Panera Bread recipe
Minestrone with Pesto
The soup is quite good. Everyone who had a bowl finished every bite, so I think that's a pretty good recommendation.
The one thing that I did not add to the soup was any hot pepper. Remember, I really like hot peppers, so this is my own personal choice, not one of the listed ingredients, but it would be a welcome addition. You can find the recipe on the Panera Bread website here. This recipe is for only 4 servings, so you may want to double it as it will freeze and be great for a quick supper or a nice welcome addition to a lunch bag. If you would prefer to make your own pesto, and I would recommend that you do as homemade is always so much better, you can find a good recipe here.
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday. My new Vogue magazine arrived yesterday. I think I'm headed for a hot bath where I can soak away some stress and get ready for the upcoming week!
