The "pappa col pomodoro" is an ancient Tuscan recipe, a very poor dish invented to use the old and stale bread. As in most Italian recipes, the secret is in the quality and freshness of the ingredients (well, not of the bread...), since the preparation is really very simple.
250 g rustic bread (few days old)
400 g fresh tomatoes
extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper
800 g hot water or light stock
First thing is cook garlic in extra virgin olive oil then add chopped up tomatoes (big chunks).
