Chicken, Chickpea & Orecchiette Pasta Soup

Hey, ya’ll, I hope you’ll forgive another soup recipe if it’s 80 degrees where you are, but seeing as we have tons of snow I’m still in full on comfort mode. But maybe no matter what the temp is where you are, you’ll want to try this Chicken, Chickpea & Orecchiette Pasta Soup. Can I say Hygge? I feel a little silly when I get all trendy and say things like Hygge, but look it up. This soup will be in the definition.

Skillet Lasagna

Skillet Lasagne - easy meal with all the taste of a real deal lasagne

I think cooks must be divided into two camps when it comes to Lasagna. Those that toss it together with no problem (and yeah, I’m jealous of them) and those that think, “Yeah, it’s great, but it’s a production and the mess!” That’s me. Love Lasagne – hate making it. Raise your hand if you’re with me, here!
