Some sites even offer ready-made pasta recipes. A hearty Tuscan soup recipe can be spiced using fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, fresh herbs and spices.

A healthy variation on the well-known lasagna, hearty Tuscan soup recipe uses thin, juicy chunks of tomato and tender, almost mushy tomatoes. Canned, fire-roasted tomatoes add that little bit of zest to this traditional soup. Using a pressure cooker makes it even easier, but the method is not difficult.

Simply add all the ingredients, stir to combine, and sit in the cooker to cook for about an hour, until soft. Then it’s just a matter of pure bliss – spoonfuls of creamy, delicious tomato soup!
