This year we are taking our "concession stand" up a notch by expanding our offering to include easy recipes like great soups, and one pot meals because man and woman cannot live on snacking alone. Our first addition is Pasta Fagioli.

It's a cold, snowy night. All you want to do is have some hot soup and watch classic movies while forgetting the world outside. This soup is perfect and is ready in under an hour.
