Last night we went to Stations of the Cross and as we entered the church, we were invited to have a cup of soup before the service. Now I wish I had accepted the invite as the divine smells of garlic, tomato, parmesan cheese and basil filled the church. The soup was referred to as Bruschetta and in googling the recipe, I found that this recipe was developed to use left over tomatoes mixed up for Bruschetta. Broiled cheese on toasted baguette was the most appealing
Here is my recipe for this soup based on the ingredients for Bruschetta. I will be looking to find the recipe that they used in church.
1 can of dice tomatoes, Italian or plain
plus 2 tins of water
1 onion and garlic cloves, caramelize in Olive oil
Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes to develop flavor
Ladle into soup bowl
Top with toasted baguette or croutons
Cover with shredded Mozzarella cheese
Bake, Broil in oven until cheese is melted and bubbly!
Garnish with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil
I can hardly wait to see what soup they will be dishing out next Friday!
