During the colder months, I love making soups for my family. I enjoy the scents it brings into my home and the warmth too! Nothing says fall, like a good pot of soup!
I received some Dreamfields Pasta, (which was PERFECT timing because October IS National Pasta Month!!!), and wanted to make something everyone in my family would enjoy and want to eat seconds of. I came up with a delicious and healthy Penne Rigate Chicken Pasta Soup and it was a HUGE hit!!
My soup is great for casual entertaining or a nice evening with the family. It feeds quite a few people and everyone will have a full and happy tummy after devouring this healthy pasta soup!

Dreamfields Pasta has always been a hit in our home and one of the only pasta I will use, to make our meals. Why? Well, for starters, the fact that a one-cup cooked serving of Dreamfields pasta (2 oz. dry) provides 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein! So yes, I am partial to Dreamfields Pasta! There are many other reasons too, but that is one of them.
I would love for all of you to check out Dreamfields Pasta and see how wonderful it is and to learn more about the brand.
