Today's episode: Acquacotta Di Santa Fiora (aka Tuscan Bread Soup).
After it had simmered for 40 minutes I took it off the heat and I added one cup of ricotta cheese and a cup of cut up fresh spinach.
The verdict: most excellent soup that went down well on a cold night.
This recipe is pretty simple to prepare and it's loaded with flavor and lots of good things that are good for you. I'll definitely make it again and next time I'll only add two cups of water but I'll add two cups of tomatoes. I'll also amp up the spices, especially the pepper. It's a nice mellow soup that goes down well. The recipe called for bitter greens and home cooked beans but since I had neither I made substitutions. Like I said, it was all very good and I'll definitely make this again.
