Quick Italian Tomato Soup

Although this is made in a similar way to an Italian tomato pasta sauce, it still works wonderfully as a soup that can transform a chilly autumnal evening to something a lot more comforting with the addition of some warmed crusty bread or toasted ciabatta.

£0.30 per Person



  • Ingredients

    1tbsp Olive Oil
    1 Onion Finely Chopped
    2 Garlic Cloves Crushed
    1 Large Carrot Peeled and Diced into Small Chunks
    400g Tin Chopped Tomatoes
    1tbsp Tomato Puree
    750ml Chicken or Vegetable Stock Made with 2 Stock Cubes
    100g Macaroni or Similiar
    Leaves from a Sprig of Fresh Rosemary Finely chopped
    1tbsp dried Oregano
    Salt and Pepper

How to Cook

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or stockpot and fry the onion with a little salt for 2 minutes, or until soft. Add the carrot and garlic then fry for another 5 minutes over a low heat until everything starts to soften up.

2. Pour in the tomatoes and stock, then bring to the boil. Add the tomato puree and stir through, then add the pasta and herbs. Simmer for 12-15 minutes (or until the pasta is cooked). Season with salt and pepper, then serve topped with some parmesan cheese and your favourite bread on the side.

Spruce it up

Don’t be afraid to change the combination of herbs, add a pinch of dried chilli flakes, pour in a tin of borlotti beans or break up some leftover roast chicken and stir into the soup for an even more filling affair.
