15 MIN

  1. In a large saucepan, soften the onion and garlic in the oil. Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the tomatoes burst while cooking.
  2. With a whisk, purée the tomatoes. Add the bread and stir until it falls apart. Add the broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the chopped basil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve this very thick soup drizzled with olive oil and garnished with basil leaves.


  1. Amazing! Couldn't believe that this tasted exactly like the pappa alla pomodoro I had in Florence this summer. This recipe is a keeper!
