Perfect pasta

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. 

Night, everyone!
