Now you can have two bowls …

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Onion, Chopped
  • 5 cloves Garic, Minced
  • 28 ounces, weight Canned Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste

  • ¼ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper

  • ¼ cups Heavy Cream (optional)

Preparation

Place the butter, onions and garlic in a large sauce pot over medium-low heat. Saute for 5-8 minutes to soften. Stir occasionally.

Then add the tomatoes, tomato paste, basil leaves, chicken stock, beans, and crushed red pepper. Turn the heat up to medium-high and simmer for 20 minutes, stir occasionally.

Turn off the heat. Using an immersion blender, puree the the soup until completely smooth. Taste and salt and pepper as needed.

YUM!! This soup is delicious and easy to make. I’d definitely recommend an immersion blender rather than a standard blender, but I made do with what I had. I didn’t add any heavy cream because I liked the consistency without it. Next time I may add just a little less red pepper. This will definitely become a regular in our house!
