Cook. time: 1 hour

Portions: about 10



extra virgin olive oil - I used the Laudemio which i love the most

250g diced pancetta, guanciale or similar bacon

600g white onions, peeled and finely sliced

1.5 litres chicken stock

1 x 400g tin/glass chopped tomatoes

100ml whipped cream

fresh parmesan cheese 

fresh basil leaves

First start off with dicing your bacon. Put the olive oil into a saucepan over a heat and fry the bacon for about 3-4 minutes. Don't forget to stir now and then. 


Add the sliced onions and stir together. Cook for 20 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent onions from burning.


Now pour in the stock and add tomatoes. Bring to the boil and let to simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Just before serving, taste and season with salt and pepper and add the whipped cream to thicken up the soup a bit and add that creaminess a bit.


Serve hot, with Parmesan and basil leaves on the top. You can optionaly serve the soup with piece of bread.
