Loaded with veggies like carrot and celery, this chicken minestrone soup is both healthy and comforting. And for once, it doesn’t seem weird for me to post a winter recipe when we’re in the middle of summer in Australia.

If you’ve ever made lasagna before, you know it’s not the easiest and quickest dish there is. It’s delicious and comforting for sure, but it’s a lot of work.
