{yummy soup recipe} ~ Monument photographer

I love making and eating soup (especially with bread!) for dinner during the winter months.  My husband doesn't really like soup unless it's hearty so I love this recipe for "Easy Italian Soup".  Not only is it meaty but it's full of veggies too!  Even my Mom likes to make this recipe and she does NOT cook!  Oh, and if you're wondering where I get all my EASY recipes (easy being 5 ingredients or less that I can make in 30 minutes or less), I subscribe to a fun cookbook from www.kraftfoods.com.
