Using canned plum tomatoes for this cream-style soup gives a tomato flavor that's more true than that of many prepared canned soups. Mini pasta adds texture and makes the soup more filling.

Ingredients

2
oz. (1/2 cup) uncooked mini bow tie pasta (farfalle), orzo or rosamarina (rice-shaped pasta)
2
tablespoons butter
1
medium onion, chopped
1
(28-oz.) can Italian plum tomatoes, undrained, cut up
1
cup water
1/3
cup whipping cream
1 1/3
oz. (1/3 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1 Cook pasta to desired doneness as directed on package. Drain.
  • 2 Meanwhile, melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until tender. Add tomatoes and water; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cream; simmer 5 minutes.
  • 3 Add cooked pasta to soup. If desired, add salt and pepper to taste. To serve, ladle soup into individual soup bowls. Top each serving with cheese.

Expert Tips

Add cooked pasta to soups just before serving to prevent them from disintegrating and making the soup "gluey." Choose a size and shape that will add body and satisfaction without transforming the soup into a pasta dish. Some favorites for adding to soups: • Mini bow ties (farfalle) • Mini lasagna noodles (mafalda) • Alphabet noodles • Orzo (rosamarina or rice-shaped pasta) • Ditalini (tiny tubes) • Skinney egg noodles • Mini stars
