Pappa al Pomodoro (Tuscan Tomato Bread Soup)

Pappa al pomodoro is a thick, Tuscan bread soup that transforms stale or leftover bread into a delicious and hearty soup, perfect for the fall or winter months. That makes this the perfect recipe to make to bring the taste of fresh tomatoes into your home year-round.

This recipe calls for our Organic Rustic Tomato Basil Sauce, but any of our sauces would make an excellent base.
