Italian Fusilli Zuppa / Pasta Soup

Photobucket

Zuppa!! I love the name by itself :)

Zuppa - the Italian name for soup attracted me so much when I read it in the menu of the restaurants that I visited in Italy. Unfortunately I missed tasting them there, but ever since I knew the name I have been calling it out every time I see soup here in India.

Last evening I was desperate to make some soup and bling again the name zuppa came to my mind. I bothered myself to search the web and find a lot of recipes but I had to cook it all up with the ingredients that were available in my pantry. So here comes my version of fusilli zuppa.

It taste so yummy and was lite in texture yet filling the tummy too :)

Method:

Chop onion and garlic finely.

Cook the corn and keep it aside. Puree the tomato.

Take olive oil in a pan and saute the chopped onions and garlic for two mins in low flame. Add the tomato puree, pasta and sweet corn along with 4 cups of water. Allow this to boil for 10 mins on high flame.

Dilute the corn flour in 2 tblsp of water.

Check if the pasta is cooked. If done, add the diluted corn flour to the soup and keep stirring until it thickens slightly. Keep the flame low and keep stirring for five minutes.

Finally add salt, pepper and italian herbs and mix well.

Serve hot. Enjoy eating :)

This quantity makes 6 servings of delicious soup :)

Add chilly flakes or Tabasco sauce for additional spice :)
