I love soup on a cold day and it is could here in Kansas! This delicious Zuppa Toscana soup recipe was a hit at one of our recent family get togethers. You might also like my Tomato Basil Soup. It is so good and I have learned that if you used crushed tomatoes there is no need to blend or process! I also love this Cheddar Corn Chowder recipe. It is a thick and hearty soup. Probably one of my most favorite soups is Wild Rice and Tomato Soup.
