Pappa al Pomodoro

Submitted by: KDMEYERS

Introduction

Tuscan Bread Soup Tuscan Bread Soup
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 cups peeled tomatoes, chopped - can use canned
    1/2 loaf stale whole grain bread , cut into smallish pieces
    1 liter (about 4 cups) low sodium chicken broth, warmed
    1 can white canneloni beans
    4 cloves of garlic, minced
    basil, chopped coarsely
    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (you can also use seasoned or spicy oil)
    salt and pepper
    crushed red pepper

Directions

Place the stale bread in a large bowl and pour the warm broth over it, cover and set aside for at least 1 hour.
Over medium heat and in a wide pot, pour the oil and sauté the garlic. Add the tomatoes and a dash of salt and pepper. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
Go back to your bread, which should have absorbed most of the broth. Add the bread to the pot, squeezing it a bit with your hand as you do so to eliminate any excess broth. Add white beans. Cook for at least 15 minutes, stirring every so often with a wooden spoon.
Serve warm, adding a bit of fresh cut basil and a swirl of good olive oil on top.

Buon appetito!
