Pappa Al Pomodoro Recipe

Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a heavy stockpot and stir well. Cover and simmer 45 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 1 hour. The mixture should be very thick. Before serving, stir the soup well to break up all the bread pieces. Ladle into individual bowls and sprinkle with a little extra-virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. Serve lukewarm or reheat.
