The Plumber Soup

I'm calling this the Plumber's Soup because last night, before starting dinner, I had to contact 4 plumbers... We noticed a small leak coming from the upstairs bathroom two days ago, and last night, while my husband looked for the leak, I called a few numbers to see if anybody could come and help us. In the end, we will not need any "professional help", we are well able to fix the small broken thing: money saving :)

Anyhow, the Soup was soooo good, I think I'll make it again soon. So light, so fulfilling, so easy to make...


3 spoons of Olive Oil
1/4 of a white Onion, sliced
3 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Sausage, cut in small cubes
1/2 litre of Tomato Sauce
3 cups of Water
1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves
Salt to taste

Small Pasta to add at the end

Heat the oil in a pot and fry the sausage cubes for a few minutes, then add the onion and let it get soft. Once the onion is properly cooked, add the garlic. Let the garlic season the oil but don't let it go brown. Add the passata, the salt and the water and just let it cook on medium heat for 15 or 20 minutes.
Once the soup is ready, throw in the pasta you need and let it cook until ready. Before serving, put the basil leaves in the pot. Do not cook the basil, when cooked, it releases some toxins and nobody wants that. Serve and enjoy. Wonderful!!!

To make it Vegan, just leave out the sausage and substitute it with peas.
