Tomato Soup with Chickpeas and Pasta
Canned tomatoes—not the seasonally sensitive fresh ones—provide the flavor here, so you can whip up this heartwarming soup any time of year. If you'd like to use an herb other than sage, either rosemary or marjoram would be a good choice. Slideshows: Warming Soups
Test Kitchen Tip Look for high-quality canned tomatoes for this soup, such as plum tomatoes from the San Marzano region of Italy.
Italians have had two millennia to develop an incredible synergy between their wines and tomato-based cuisine. Take advantage of this experience and pair this soup with a cherry- and herb-scented Chianti Classico or Rufina.
