White Bean Pesto Soup is a quick, easy, and delicious family meal….perfect for weeknights, perfect for winter!
Hi there, Or So She Says friends! It’s Cathy from Lemon Tree Dwelling, back from a short break to share another delicious recipe with you! I don’t know about where you live….but where I live, it’s COLD! Not as cold as it has been, that’s for sure, but cold enough that you don’t really want to be outside. EVER! And cold enough that when you are outside for any extended period of time, all you want to do is come back inside, put on some sweatpants, and eat a big bowl of soup!
I don’t mean to complain, really…..I was born and raised here in Wisconsin and I am used to the cold. And, to be honest, there is something nice about spending more time indoors! It means more time for reading, more time for snuggling, more time for playing board games and cozying up by the fire, and more time spent together as a family! But. To get through it, you need to be prepared. With lots of delicious, cozy winter recipes!
This White Bean Pesto Soup is the perfect thing to cozy up to on a cold winter day. It combines some of my favorite things….and best of all, it’s topped with a big spoonful of pesto to give it an amazingly rich and delicious flavor! So even if you did happen to find yourself outside in the cold, you wouldn’t mind. Because at least you’d know you have THIS to look forward to!
