I love to eat soup all year round, but when Fall hits I crave it more than usual. Last week, on a particularly nasty October day, I had a hankering for Denise's pasta peas. Although this is an Italian recipe, I had never had it until Denise made it for me back in high school. Still one of my favorites and it is super easy
Here's what you do:
First you saute a whole diced onion and about 6 cloves of garlic in some olive oil. Then you add two large cans of tomato sauce and about 3 cans of water and a bag of frozen peas. While that is simmering boil a couple of cups of the pasta of your choice, I use ditalini, but you can use whatever you have in your cabinet. When the soup has simmered about 30 minutes add pasta. Serve topped with Parmesan or Romano cheese and with a couple of slices of Italian bread. Yum!
