Food By Mom -- Tomato Soup

My daughter chided me yesterday for not having added a new recipe lately. So, this is for her.

On Fridays, we alternate pizza night with soup night. So tonight I decided to make some great cheesy bread -- Gruyère-Stuffed Crusty Loaves . Our version was stuffed with extra sharp cheddar instead of gruyere. Delicious! The soup -- a very simple tomato soup.


Tomato soup

1 finely chopped onion

2 finely chopped cloves of garlic

2 slices prosciutto, diced

2 large cans Muir Glen Fire Roasted crushed tomatoes

1 cup red wine

2 cups water or stock

salt and pepper to taste

chopped fresh basil

1 1/2 T. butter

1 T. olive oil

Saute onions, garlic, and prosciutto in a large sauce pan. Stir until onions are translucent. Add tomatoes, water and wine. Add salt and pepper.

Allow soup to simmer while the bread bakes -- about 30 minutes.
