- 28 ounces peeled tomatoes
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley
- 3 leaves basil

This is excellent ! The flavors are mellow and the tripe tender. I grew up having this soup and still make it (my brother calls requesting it several times a year:))I have served this to company and they loved it. Most of the time they don't know what it is or think the tripe is baccala or some type of fish until I explain the difference and they can not believe how delicious this really is
