Beyond Minestrone: 5 Recipes for Pasta Soups

It's Pasta Week here on The Kitchn and you're in for an inspiring few days of casseroles, pastas recipes and ideas, and kitchen tips. But I thought we should kick things off the way so many good things begin: with soup.

But today it's time to look beyond minestrone at some inspiring substantial soup recipes that will fill you up and keep you warm throughout the season.
