This weekend, the rain is making us want to curl up with blankets and eats lots of delicious soup. Of course, we have been out and about in the rain all weekend. But there is something about a stormy day that urges me to put a pot of soup on the stove. Our favorite part of soup is that it is so incredibly effortless to make. After choosing all of the essential flavors, it is so comforting to let it simmer on the stove and take in the incredible aromas. We love picking out produce to pour into the broth and getting excited by fresh, flavorful soup. This delicious minestrone soup with ravioli was the perfect comfort food for a rainy day. We enjoyed listening to the rain while devouring every last vegetable. The flavors were so amazing and made us so eager to spend the blustery day inside, devouring minestrone.
Before making homemade soup, Dan and I were fans of buying soup in cans or plastic grocery store containers. We loved the convenience of having instant and tasty soup. However, the minute we started making our soup from scratch, the flavors were game changing. Each fresh vegetable and bubbly spoonful of broth, caused us to be convinced by the powers of homemade soup – especially this homemade minestrone soup with ravioli. Besides the freshness, the smells that fill a home are entirely worth every small effort to make soup.
