Tomato Soup with Pasta – Pasta Tomato Soup Recipe with Step wise pictures.
Soups are such a comforting meal. Some soups make light meal and some are filling. But overall consuming lots of soups is so good for your body. I have made lots of version of soup on my blog and tomato soup is my absolute favorite. I enjoy a hot bowl of soup served with some butter toasted bread or garlic bread.
This soup is so delicious and pretty filling. It makes a light lunch or dinner. I made a simple tomato based soup and added some uncooked pasta right into the soup and cooked it which gave the soup its desired thickness without the need of adding cornflour. I had some tiny balls like pasta into the soup, the pasta which i used is called as acini di pepe. You can use small macaroni or elbow pasta. I added some frozen sweetcorn in this too, you can use peas in this as well.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
