Chicken and Pasta Soup

Put last night's chicken to good use by shredding the leftovers and stirring into a flavorful broth. Prepare your favorite pasta — orzo works nicely — and add to the soup right before serving.

Broccoli Soup

Add a hearty dose of cream to pureed onion, potato and thawed packaged broccoli. Top the soup with hot crumbled bacon and shredded cheddar for a burst of color and salty flavor.

Creamy Tomato Soup

Liven up this creamy soup with earthy flavors by preparing a three-herb medley. Using kitchen twine, bundle together parsley sprigs, a bay leaf and thyme, then add to the tomato broth. Remember to remove the bundle before pureeing — otherwise the herbs will overpower the flavor.
