ITALIAN BREAD SOUP RECIPE
Last week when we went to buy a laptop which we were planning for a very long time, we finished our shopping and after that we wanted to install some additional things to it and the shopkeeper told that it will take one hour and as the time was around 7 pm kids started feeling hungry and we went to a nearby cafe. Unfortunately nothing was there for vegetarians. Finally we thought we will have some juice but the choice which the kiddos opted for was not there. Then finally they told they have a choice of a vegetarian soup and we ordered one and told the waiter that we will order one more if the kids like the soup. We all loved the soup and it was quite filling too. While we were having the soup the chef visited the dining area(it was a very small cafe). When he asked the feed back about the soup i casually asked him the recipe and he immediately told the recipe of the bread soup in detail and i made this 2 days back. My kids enjoyed and the taste was so close to the soup which we tasted in the cafe.

jeyashree
can we add tomatoes instead of pasta sauce…or can we simply skip the pasta sauce…?

Reply
admin November 1, 2012 - 7:54 am

Feel free to add tomatoes instead of pasta sauce, but taste will change as pasta sauce will have lots of italian seasoning. Just increase the seasoning if using tomatoes

Till today I never knew that we can make a soup with the side portions of the Bread. This is really very innovative and i am going to do this tomorrow and surprise my spouse, mom and my son. Just looking forward to it and will post you back with the feedback tomorrow. Thank you so much for such lovely innovations. Thank you.
