Run through my Facebook feed and you start to see snow on the ground in parts of the country. I am in Texas and I immediately reach for the sweatshirt and the fluffy socks when the temperature goes below 60. That is also the time that I pull out my soup recipes! Like this Super Easy Pumpkin Soup Recipe! After being sent Cucina Antica Tuscany Pumpkin sauce, I was inspired to find a soup I could use it in. As the base of the soup, this sauce adds flavor, richness and a unique flavor you will love! Dip your grilled cheese in it, add some crackers or eat it plain, like I enjoy it, but just eat it!
I will admit, when this particular sauce arrived for me to try, I was a little lost. Pumpkin Sauce? What do I use that on? But a simple taste told me that I could pretty much put it on anything for a rich flavor you can not get anywhere else!
