With the bitter cold temperatures outside right now, a warm bowl of soup is the ultimate comfort food, and this soup more than fills the bill.
Zuppa Rustica is the result of several reincarnations of a soup from a famous restaurant chain. The soup is one of my husband's favorites, and one he orders often. A few years ago, I found a copy cat version of the soup online, and gave him the recipe.
Never one to follow exact directions, he made a couple alterations, and his version was richer and tasted better than the original.
