"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Pea and Zucchini Soup
Pea and Zucchini Soup
(Zuppa di Piselli e Zucchini)
Italian soups are distinctly thick. In this recipe we pulse-chop the cooked vegetables in a food processor and add more peas at the end. Frozen petit pois work just as well. You can choose either chicken or vegetable stock cubes for this soup. We use chicken.

1.1 lb (500 grams) zucchini
2 garlic cloves
2 ounces (50 grams) Parmigiano cheese
2 stock cubes
Extra virgin olive oil
1.1 lb (500 grams) podded fresh peas
3 tbsp basil leaves
Trim the ends of the zucchini, cut them in half lengthways, and then into 1/2 inch pieces.

Peel and chop the garlic.

Grate the Parmigiano cheese.

Dissolve the stock cubes in 3 cups of boiling water.

In a thick-bottomed saucepan, heat two tablespoons of olive oil and fry the garlic until soft.
Add the zucchini and cook, stirring, until soft.

Add half the peas, stir and then add half the stock.
Cook until the peas are tender.
Put into a food processor and pulse-chop to a coarse puree.

Bring the remaining peas to the boil in the remaining stock, and cook for five minutes.

Scoop out the peas with a slotted spoon, and stir into the soup, adding a little of the stock if the soup is too thick.

Serve with torn basil leaves and grated Parmigiano cheese.
