Soup is a go-to meal for my family in the colder months. It's easy to make — just add your ingredients to a big pot and cook — and it's a meal full of possibility. But the one thing our soups always have is macaroni, which helps a simple bowl of the stuff fill us right up. Between spooning up the slippery noodles and slurping down the flavorful broth, most of the time, I don't even realize how many veggies I'm getting in each serving, whether they're high-quality Red Gold whole plum tomatoes or some hearty chopped winter greens. 

You can make super-creamy soups, perfect for the coldest days of winter, or light and brothy soups full of vegetables, great for eating in the days following heavy holiday meals or when you're feeling under the weather. Use these recipes as a guideline, but don't be afraid to experiment — whether you're adding extra macaroni, tomatoes, cheese or meat, you're sure to have a comfort food hit on your hands. If you're going with tomatoes, you should know that Red Gold won the Epicurious award for Best Canned Tomatoes. And for good reason: They're delicious.
