Soup Opera

Most everyone has a favorite cultural soup. Maybe you want for won ton, get misty for matzoh balls, or go ga-ga over gazpacho. It's hard to go wrong with the Italian trifecta of minestrone, pasta fagioli and lentil & pasta. Mrs. Leeper's, a longtime gluten-free pasta maker, has just introduced a convenient way to prepare those three Italian favorites.

Imported from Italy, the company's new suite of all-natural gluten-free soup mixes - minestrone, pasta fagioli and lentil & pasta - are made with a blend of corn and rice pasta along with traditional ingredients like beans, lentils, carrots and onions. Each mix takes about 15 minutes to prepare on the stove top. The tender pasta in the pasta fagioli I sampled blended seamlessly with the zesty broth and made for a filling lunch.

Each mix has a suggested retail price of $3.69. Look for them soon at natural foods markets and grocery stores nationwide. The soups will be available for sampling at next month's Gluten-Free Living Conference in Orlando, where I'll be a featured speaker.
