What do you do with leftover soup? You make perfect pasta!
I only had a little bit of the tomato soup left. The amount left was not enough for another bowl of soup so I decided to use it as a pasta sauce.
Best idea ever!
The pasta ended up being creamy and rich and each strand soaked up the sauce. I love it when that happens.
The basic instructions:
1 serving of spaghetti cooked al dente
1/2 cup of homemade tomato soup
3 basil leaves, torn into small pieces
Stir the cooked pasta, basil and soup together over low heat until the pasta has absorbed some of the soup/sauce.
Plate the pasta and add a light sprinkle of shredded Parmesan and cracked black pepper to taste.
A perfect,quick midweek dinner.
