Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup

If half of the soup fills your blender by more than two-thirds, process the soup in three batches. You can also use an immersion blender to process the soup directly in the pot. For an even smoother soup, pass the pureed mixture through a fine-mesh strainer before stirring in the chicken broth in step 2. Serve this soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for a Crowd or topped with Butter Croutons (see related recipes).

Ingredients
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil , plus more for drizzling
1 medium onion , chopped medium (about 1 cup)
3 medium garlic cloves , minced or pressed through garlic press (about 1 tablespoon)
Pinch hot red pepper flakes (optional)
1 bay leaf
2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes packed in juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 large slices good-quality sandwich bread , crusts removed, torn into 1-inch pieces
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons brandy (optional)
Table salt and ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Instructions
1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion, garlic, red pepper flakes (if using), and bay leaf. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and their juice. Using potato masher, mash until no pieces bigger than 2 inches remain. Stir in sugar and bread; bring soup to boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until bread is completely saturated and starts to break down, about 5 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf.

2. Transfer half of soup to blender. Add 1 tablespoon oil and process until soup is smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to large bowl and repeat with remaining soup and oil. Rinse out Dutch oven and return soup to pot. Stir in chicken broth and brandy (if using). Return soup to boil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve soup in individual bowls. Sprinkle each portion with pepper and chives and drizzle with olive oil.

I made Italian Wedding soup tonight. It was great! I took half of the two posted mixed them.

This for the meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup
Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis
Show: Everyday Italian
Episode: Viewer Requests
Meatballs:
1 small onion, grated
1/3 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 large egg
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 slice fresh white bread, crust trimmed, bread torn into small pieces
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
8 ounces ground beef
8 ounces ground pork
Freshly ground black pepper
(I had to add some bread crumbs)

Baked the though in the oven, I like to do it that way to get some of the grease out of them meatballs (but I doubled the recipe.)

This for the soup

1 pkg frozen spinach (thawed & drained)
1/2 box egg pastina (I used about a cup of barley)
Meatballs
1 sm/med onion chopped or grated
2 stalks celery chopped
3 carrots peeled and chopped
2 tsp chopped garlic (or 1 large clove)
6-8 cups chicken stock

Add meatballs and soup mixture together and simmer until all veggies are soft and hmmmm


Turned out great!

Turkey Sausage and Veggie Soup

1 lb. turkey sausage
1 onion
2 cloves garlic (or more, whatever you like)
2 carrots
3 celery stalks
1 cup fresh green beans
2 sm. zucchini
1 can cannellini beans
1 can diced tomatoes
2 - 32 oz chix broth (more or less, I added some water too)
Pepper
Italian seasoning

Brown turkey sausage, add onions, deglaze with some chicken broth, add everything but zucchini and beans, bring to a boil, simmer for a while. Add beans and zucchini about 20 minutes before serving.

You can make some elbows or soup pasta to go in it, but this is pretty hearty on its own.

HA!
Just ask Della. Her parents are addicted to it lol. Mine is different from the recipe above in a lot of ways. I start out with a whole chicken and simmer it to make my stock. No canned broth for me. I shread the chicken to put in the soup. I use escarole not spinach. Plus 1# of carrots, 1 grated white onion, about 1/2 a bulb of garlic, and acini de pepe pasta. Also some basil.
My meatballs are different also, though I do use a 50/50 beef and pork mixture. I boil mine in salt water for about 2 minutes then drain before adding to the soup. I use a little bread crumbs, some oregano, garlic powder and basil plus some black pepper in them.
Multa beni`. \:\)
