“In an effort to use up leftovers in the refrigerator... If you wish, the soup can be simmered slowly in a crock pot on LOW. Also, I use canned organic tomatoes if preparing out of season. (As I was posting this recipe, the thought occurred to me that adding cream to the soup might be really good! And it was! The cream is, of course optional.) Serve with focaccia!”
