Falling For Soup

Welcome Fall!  Finally I can revisit my closet & start trading my tank tops & shorts for cozy sweaters & jeans.  The cool nights invite me to snuggle up with the kiddos on the couch, hide under a blanket, & only pop up every now & then to take a few slurps of the perfect fall dinner choice:  soup.

Thanks to Formato Brothers I can have an Italian hearty meal in less than 15 minutes.  Formato Brothers carries a variety of Alessi Traditional Soup Mixes such as Sicilian Lentil, Neopolitan Bean, Chicken Noodle, but my favorite is the Zuppa Toscana (Tuscan White Bean Soup).  It’s so easy to make — literally boil some water, stir in the package of soup mix, simmer for 12 minutes…you’re done!  As soon as I opened the package essences of garlic, herbs & white beans filled my kitchen.  The best part was that I had a creamy, filling dinner in only 12 minutes.  If you’d like a little something to go with your favorite soup, pair it with Alessi Grissin Torinesi rosemary Breadsticks also available on FormatoBrothers.com.

If you’re like me, you value every free second you have to spend time with your family or….revisiting your closet!  Buon Appetito!
