Recipe of the Day - Rustic Spanish-Style Tomato Soup

This was dinner tonight at our house... I am too tired some days to come up with fantastic or extravagant meal ideas, plus the kids don't eat my best meals anyways. Tonight I wanted them to get some good calories so I added sausage to the recipe. It's delicious and hearty and best of all, it's super easy.

Rustic Spanish-Style Tomato Soup 
Ingredients:
2 onions, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 stalks celery, cut in half lengthwise and roughly chopped
2 large cans plum tomotoes
2 cups water
1 Tbsp rubbed sage
1 Tbsp marjoram or oregano
4 each bay leaves
2-3 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cups 35% cream (or substitute 10% if you must)

Instructions:
1. Heat olive oil in a large soup pot until hot. Add onions and celery and saute until onions are translucent, about 5-10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile crush the tomatoes by hand or using a potato masher, making sure there are no big pieces left. Add all the other ingredients except the cream. Simmer for 20 minutes to infuse.


3. Add cream, simmer another 5 minutes and serve right away or place in the fridge for several days. Note: This soup is delicious with the addition of sausage which can be removed from the casing and sauteed along with the onions and celery. Yield: 8 servings
