This was so "fresh". It's the only word I can use to describe it.
Tomato Basil Soup with Orzo
1 T olive oil 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine 2 cans (14 1/2 oz) chicken broth 2 cans diced tomatoes 1/2 c orzo 1 c chopped fresh basil salt & pepper, to taste Parmesan cheese, to taste
Heat olive oil in a soup pot (I used 4 1/2 qt) and saute garlic until fragrant. Add broth and tomatoes, and bring to a boil. Add orzo and simmer for ~10 minutes, or until orzo is tender. Stir in basil, salt, pepper, and parmesan, and simmer ~3-5 minutes more. Delicious with crusty bread.
