This might seem like a heavy dish for those of you experiencing a heat wave. We had a bit of a heat wave of our own last week–the temperatures got into the 70s! In June? Almost unheard of (haha…ugh).
To combat the cloudy, wet weather I made a comfort soup. It was filled with meat flavor, went well with a salad, and helped me get my slight Italian on with the meatballs.
Feel free to file this recipe away for when you have chilly weather and need a cozy soup. You can also substitute fresh herbs for the dried. That was all I had access to at the time. It may seem like there are a bunch of ingredients, but most should be pantry staples.
