Honeymoon Soup

Chris has been running a temperature of over 100 for the last couple of days, and I haven’t been feeling well either.  So today we required soup.  Chris drove me to the store (soon we’ll have a car I can drive, too!), and I did some quick shopping to put this together.

It’s pretty easy, and you can tweak it your own preferences.  Add a little bit more of this or a little less of that.  It’s actually a knock off of a soup my BFF turned us on to, so it’s a variation in and of itself. It is great leftover, though we’ve never had enough left to consider freezing it.  Might be worth a try!

Honeymoon Soup [aptly named this because we created it on…you’ll never guess….our honeymoon!]

  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4ish cups of any type of broth (more or less depending on how thick you like your soup)
  • 1 small (14.5 oz) can of whole tomatoes, chopped along with their juice [we used a can of diced this time, but prefer the texture of whole ones]
  • 1 can of white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 large handfuls of dry egg noodles (or more depending on how many you want)
  • 4 handfuls of teenage spinach (it’s cheaper than baby, and I find it works just as well)
  • Parmesan or Romano (our preference)
  1. Saute the onion in about a tablespoon of oil and some salt in a soup pot over medium heat until softened and just starting to brown around the edges. Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant.
  2. Meanwhile, bring some water to boil to cook the egg noodles.  Cook until done and drain.
  3. To the onions and garlic, add the tomatoes with their juices, the rinsed beans and the broth.  Bring to a simmer to allow the flavors to meld.
  4. When the broth mixture is simmering, add the cooked egg noodles and stir.
  5. Tear handfuls of the spinach in your hands and add them to the pot.  Stir until they are wilted and evenly distributed.
  6. Add salt (depending on your broth you may need to add more or less) and pepper to taste.
  7. Top individual portions with Parmesan or Romano.

  1. […] soup – This is the soup we adapted into honeymoon soup, and since my BFF gave us the recipe we’ve decided to name it after her.  Sure sounds better […]
