How to make Cherry Tomato Soup

This is a really simple soup that goes great with lovely hunks of fresh bread.
Makes 3 portions.
  1. Add the onion, celery, carrot and garlic clove to a deep pan on a medium heat with a little olive oil.  Sweat the veg down without colouring it.  Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the italian sausage and thyme and stir round for a few minutes.
  3. Remove the garlic clove, then add the tomato puree and mix well.
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes and chicken stock and bring to a rolling boil.
  5. Scatter the pasta on the soup and simmer for 10 minutes.  If you see the soup getting dry, add more boiling water.
  6. Season the soup to taste with salt and pepper.  Scatter the chopped basil over and serve immediately.

    Hmmm... This recipe would come in handy in the summer. I have all of the veg and herbs mentioned here growing in my garden. I can just imagine breaking from work at lunchtime to go pick my tomatoes and whip up this soup... God, I have to stop visiting this site between meals, it's making me feel hungry.

    My fav way to cook tomatoes is to make spaghetti sauce from scratch. I'm going to try this recipe with some old fashioned grilled cheese!
