    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    An Italian tomato soup with great flavour and the pasta makes it a hearty meal, delicious and real comfort food!! Serve with chunks of garlic & mozzarella bread - I always make double if the family is home! NB I add garlic, and I dont always puree it, its just as nice left as a broth.

      Good soup. It was a bit spicy for the kids so I puréed an apple in some of the soup and added that back to the main soup. I had to use macaroni but will get a smaller pasta next time. We served this with toasted garlic bread.

      What a wonderful soup! The only kind of tomato soup I like is homemade, and this was delicious!! I read some of the other reviews, and I think I prefer this soup pureed, which is what I did. The only change I made (if you can eve call it that) was for the salt I used my Tuscan flavored sea salt. I did make my own horesradish sauce from 1 TBSP of Tofutti sour cream, 2-3 tsp horseradish and a squeeze of lime juice. I thought that gave this the perfect little kick, but not too overpowering. Did not have orecchiette, so I used a cup of orzo (one of my favorite pastas in soups!)

      This was a wonderful and tasty soup! I followed the directions exactly but I think I will try another reviewers post and not puree it next time. Thank you for a delicious dish! Made for Think Pink Breast Awareness 2009.
