Virtual Recipe Club -- Soups!

Alysha at the lovely blog The Savory Notebook has started a Virtual Recipe Club -- brilliant -- and this edition's theme is Soup. I love the idea of this event, so even though this week's going to be short on cooking (I twisted my ankle while snowboarding last weekend -- vicious ski lifts! -- and so I'm doing as little standing as possible so the darn thing will heal), I'm offering a recipe from a previous post.

(You think there are enough dashes, asides, and whatnot in the previous paragraph? Good grief.)

Tomato Soup with Pancetta is hearty and warming, and a thrifty way to make the most of that heel of bread lingering on the counter. Sometimes leftovers thicken a little too much, in which case I thin it out with a little marinara sauce before reheating. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and all will be right with the world.

    Mmm ... mascarpone and pancetta IN THE SAME DISH ... sounds divine, and oh so satisfying!

    Hope your ankle feels much, much better soon!
