This recipe is for italian tomato soup. It’s vegetarian, and perfect for cold autumn days.
“Everyday Italian soup” was the name of this soup when I first stumbled upon it.
That was about 10 years ago in hjemkundskab (~domestic science at school).
Since then it’s been adapted a little, and it became the thing me and my mom made for dinner when we were home alone. Now, whenever I make it myself, I always send her a loving thought.
This recipe is for 2 people, and I often make a double portion and save the leftovers in the freezer.
