NO SOUP FOR YOU!  One of the funniest lines in all of 90s sitcom.  Every time I say or even think of soup, I can’t help think about the “Soup Nazi” episode.  George not getting his free bread, Jerry kissing his girlfriend in line, and Elaine finding a recipe of the Soup Nazi’s! Classic comedy that still makes me laugh so hard my stomach hurts 20 years later!  {Can you believe Seinfeld first aired in 1989?}

Luckily, you won’t be subject to any rules here today.  My soup round-up includes some of my tried + trues, a new fave + a one I can’t wait to try!  You can trust that these soups are simple to make and always a crowd pleaser – even the green one.

Butternut Squash and Apple – I love The Barefoot Contessa’s recipe.  Save yourself some time, buy your butternut squash already peeled and cubed.  This recipe makes enough for a crowd and easily multiplies.

Chicken Tortilla Soup - I can’t to try this one from Eat Live Run.  She has not disappointed me yet.  Her recipes have all been real winners.  I’m sure this one will be a hit too!

Matzo Ball Soup - Always a feel good soup.  I make my good friend’s grandmother’s recipe.  I’ll have to see if we can share…shhh!  Matzo Ball Soup is way too comforting and soothing to leave off this list.  I will spend all afternoon making a huge pot of this to last us many cool nights this fall.  Worth every minute.  I linked you to a recipe from Saveur.com.

A new favorite here.  Yes. It’s the green one.  I had actually never made split pea soup before Jenna over at Eat Live Run featured it.  Quite possible one of the best soups ever.

Roasted Tomato Soup is a huge favorite at our house.  Once again, The Barefoot Contessa does it best.  My kids would eat this everyday if they could.  Simple indeed.  And the perfect way to use up late season tomatoes from your garden.  Serve with a simple grilled cheese or green salad. Done.

Italian Wedding Soup – This is truly a meal in itself!  My good friend made this for me a few years ago.  I had to have the recipe right away.  It makes enough for a large crowd.  I use ground Italian and chicken apple sausage instead of meatballs.  I also substitute tortellini for rice or other shaped pasta for a true one pot meal.
