I grew up with alot of Italians in my life (my mother, aunts, uncles, "adopted" aunts. This was a soup everyone says I came up with? Who knows? But, we always enjoy it (hot or cold). My husband, who is a big meat eater, also loves this.

  2. add oil to pan (small-medium stock size) Add garlic, saute until softened slightly
  3. Add Costco sized can of crushed tomatoes/ add broccoli / stir/ can add wine at this step/ Add Salt & pepper to taste (because of tomatoes I usually don't salt at all)

  5. Cook until broccoli is tender, stirring frequently. (approx. 20-25 min)
