Making this soup in my Houston kitchen on a fall Sunday afternoon evokes memories of my time spent on a Tuscan farm. It sounds too good to be true, but these savory smells can transport you there too! Have the kids help you peel carrot and potatoes and stir. This treat can be enjoyed throughout the week in a thermos at lunch, bringing the warmth of your home to the office or school lunch table.
