“This is a perfect soup to chase away those midwinter blahs. It is very quick and easy to put together. It is one of my favorite soups and the original recipe comes from 365 Ways to Cook Pasta by Marie Simmons. If you can't find acini di pepe pasta, you can use any solid tiny pasta shape.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and carrot; saute until tender about 5 minutes. Set a food mill over the saucepan and puree the tomatoes. (I just usually put in blender or food processor and puree). Add the chicken broth. Heat to simmering.
  2. Heat the cream in a small saucepan until simmering; gradually whisk into the tomato mixture; DO NOT BOIL.
  3. Add the acini di pepe and heat through. Add salt to taste.
  4. Sprinkle each serving with plenty of black pepper.
