the best medicine

i noticed the other day that it had been quite a while since i posted a favorite recipe of mine. today my afternoon started off with craving some soup {seeing as though i am a little under the weather}, so instead of grabbing what ever was in the pantry i found a simple recipe and altered it . so here is my take on Italian Tomato & Pasta Soup:

- 6 cups water
- 2-3 cups bowtie pasta
- 2 {14 oz} cans crushed tomatoes
- a mix of italian seasonings {parsley, garlic salt, oregano, herbs}
- 1 can tomato soup
- 4 to 6 slices bacon
- 2 to 3 cups spinach {cooked or uncooked}
- graded parmesan cheese

combine water, pasta, tomatoes, italian seasonings, tomato soup into large sauce pan
cook bacon till crispy and crumble into pieces, and add to the pot
chop up spinach and add {uncooked is how i like it}
bring to a boil or until pasta is tender
serve with graded parmesan cheese to top it all off
enjoy your bowl of hot comforting soup on a blistery fall/winter day {i really do think soup is the best medicine}

try it and tell me what you think! if there's a recipe that you love, share it with us! next on my list of recipes to share: ooey gooey butter cake {it's even better than it sounds, if that's possible}


  1. I could eat soup every day during this stretch of the year.

  2. i never want to eat soup and skip right over soup recipes whenever i come across them - but this one i've got to try!
