No, it’s not Campbell’s… in fact, it has come to this because while I don’t often eat Campbell’s tomato soup, I do sometimes and awhile ago I was eating it and thinking that while it is really easy, so too would a tomato soup made from a can of tomatoes!
1 onion chopped
1 large garlic clove crushed
1 28oz can of diced tomatoes
2 cups water
1 T tomato paste
1 t peccorcino
1 snack bag of frozen basil leaves from your garden.
balsamic vinegar to taste
salt and pepper
1) heat the olive oil in a soup pot. Add the onions and garlic.
2) When translucent, add the can of tomatoes, water (I use boiling water to speed up the process), tomato paste and peccorcino. Bring to a simmer and simmer, covered, for 20 min.
3) Half way through the simmering, get out the bag of basil from your freezer, crush between your hands, and add to the pot.
4) Hand blender the pot of soup, add salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar.
