Pizza Soup

Angie and Jim got the idea for this recipe from George Duran’s “Ham on the Street.”

2½ C prepared tomato/basil/garlic soup
1½ C water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
¾ C uncooked orzo or small shape pasta
2 tsp oregano (plus some for garnish)
1 C grated mozzarella cheese
1 C grated provolone cheese
2-4 bread bowls (optional)
optional: Parmesan, cheddar, or Monterrey jack cheese, and any ingredients that you like to add as pizza toppings (pepperoni, browned Italian sausage, ham, pineapple, sauteed mushrooms, chopped peppers, olives, etc.)

Pre-heat broiler.

Warm olive oil in large pot over med-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and any “toppings” you plan to mix in. Saute for 2-3 minutes.

Add soup and water, stir, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and oregano. Stir well. When pasta is cooked (8-10 minutes), pour soup into oven-safe bowls or bread bowls. Top each with cheese and some extra oregano. Place under broiler until cheese is bubbling and lightly browned (3-5 minutes) – watch it carefully!

Yields: 4-6 servings

Time to make: about 30 minutes
