DOING: so many things....Fall Days are comming...
Mexican Tomato Soup.....Sopa de pasta
Sopa de pasta
4 roma tomatoes, quartered
1 garlic clove
¼ cup finely chopped onion
3/4 tsp chicken bouillon powder*
1 tsp oil
3-4 oz miniature pasta**
water to thin
salt to taste
*Knorr Suiza is a great brand that can be found almost anywhere.
**La Moderna is a Mexican brand of pasta that makes a variety of miniature shapes such as stars and letters.
Place tomatoes, garlic, onions, and ½ cup water in the blender and blend until very smooth.
Cover and allow to simmer until pasta is completely cooked through. Once pasta is tender, add water to thin soup to desired consistency. Check for salt. Serve immediately for a light soup course before a heavier main course. Yield: 4-6 servings. I also sprinkle with either Queso Fresco or Parmesan cheese.. You can just serve this with a salad and french bread if you want just a lite meal which I usually do....
I love this soup and friend taught me years ago to make it. He was from Puebla Mexico. It's a nice Fall lite soup...you can use tiny pasta or bigger ones depending how hardy you want it...
So this is one of the things I came up with for my Orange Thread and orange Ribbon...And here's the other, I'm making a hot pad...
Second Post coming..more things to share with you....with love Janice
