One of our favorite parts of winter is celebrating soup season! We love tossing our ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning and coming home to a cozy, nourishing meal after work. Ina Garten is all about the soups this time of year too (celebs, they're just like us!), and she took to Instagram this week to share her favorite cozy recipe for braving chilly East Hampton winters.

In her post she says, "My Italian Wedding Soup has to be my all-time favorite soup for dinner."

Traditional Italian Wedding Soup is full of pasta, greens, veggies and pork and/or beef meatballs, but Garten swaps in chicken for a leaner bite. She also says this recipe is great for making in big batches so you'll have a tasty lunch the next day.

We also have some pretty tasty recipes for Italian Wedding Soup. Our Easy Italian Wedding Soup comes together in 20 minutes for an easy weeknight dinner, while our Italian Wedding Soup can be made in your slow cooker. Check out our tips for freezing soups so they taste just as wonderful as the first night you made them.
