Creamy Basil Parmesan Italian Soup

This is just so good. I made a batch for my lunches this week (I HAAAAATE lunch. Never know what to make, but with cooler weather soup sounds great!) Ate a cup of it in the middle of the afternoon just because- it was amazing! I will actually enjoy lunch this week!


This Italian Soup tastes is about to become your favorite soup! It tastes better than any restaurant at a fraction of the cost! It is super easy, seasoned to perfection and bursting with tender chicken, tomatoes, carrots, celery and macaroni enveloped by creamy Parmesan broth.
