From the Splendid Table

Phil's mom made this soup the night of the VP debates and I've been thinking about it ever since. It is wicked easy to make - toss everything into the Cuisinart, then into the pot. 

The only deviation from the original recipe I made was adding oregano as well. We're out of fresh tomato season, so I opted for organic Muir Glen whole tomatoes, crushing them with my hands as I scooped them out of the can.  It's more appropriate to top with asiago, or a stinky goat cheese, but fresh mozarella was in the super discount bin at the store for $2! So my soup is topped with fresh mozarella and homegrown basil. I'm going to go ladle up seconds now....
