Soup has a way -especially in winter- of being so comforting at the dinner hour. This time of the year we eat it a lot in our home, and I’m always on the lookout for easy soup recipes that I can make quickly.

Imagine putting dinner on the table in 10 minutes with just 4 ingredients…well for the soup anyway, you’re on your own for any sides you want with it!

Using a bag of Minute Steamers, some pasta sauce, cream and basil, you can. It tastes fantastic. The brown rice variety of the Minute Steamers makes it quite filling as well. In fact, my family requested I make it again, and they never eat brown rice! Plus depending what flavoring of pasta sauce you choose to use, you could create a very unique flavor just for your family.

Here’s how easy it is to make:

serves 4

1 pkg Minute Steamers – Brown Rice
1 24 oz. jar of pasta sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp dried basil

• Prepare rice according to package directions (this should take just 4 minutes in your microwave!)

• In a large microwave-save bowl combine pasta sauce, cream and basil. Cover loosely and microwave on HIGH 5 minutes, or until heated through.

• Stir in prepared rice.

That’s it!

The ‘soup’ portion can be made on the stove top as well, and that might be a better way of doing it if you are doubling the recipe for a larger family. It won’t be as quick as 10 minutes then, but it’s worth the extra time!

If a thinner soup is desired, add 1 cup heated chicken broth. On the side you can always serve a cheese bread, or top the soup with some shredded Parmesan cheese.
