A first course soup (or, heck – serve a huge bowl as a main course!) makes a holiday meal feel elegant and special in my book. And don’t you just love creating red and green foods for your Christmas table?
A soup that fits easily into your holiday mad rush to get dinner on the table is this one – 20 minutes, tops, from grocery bag to table. And the sun dried tomato pesto and the basil pesto – red and green – make this soup so, so festive.
You will get rave reviews, I promise!
Merry Christmas to All and to all a good MEAL!
