My husband isn't a huge fan of tomato soup, but my little guy loves it. He adores tomatoes and red sauces. Naturally I thought this soup would be a hit with him, and I was right. Not only did he love it, but this recipe made so much soup I was able to give some to our neighbors down the street who have been feeling a little bit under the weather. This soup makes the perfect get-well or thoughtful gift, since it screams good and comforting food.
Although this soup does take a bit of work and patience, it is short on the ingredient list and isn't extremely time intensive in that you need to be watching it constantly. I was able to complete some other kitchen tasks and play with my little guy all while occasionally stirring and taking care of the soup.
The ditalini pasta is a fun touch, making this soup as close to SpaghettiOs as possible. However, if you are unable to find this pasta or want to substitute with a whole-wheat version, then a different type of pasta would work great. Just make sure to follow the directions on the package when cooking the pasta. The other note for interchanging the pasta is to try to use smaller noodles, such as orzo or macaroni.
Make a homemade version of everyone's favorite childhood soup: SpaghettiOs. It's super easy and even better than the canned original.
