Tomato-Basil Soup With Ricotta Dumplings

I love my Pampered Chef cookbooks! This recipe comes from one of my favorites, “Cooking for Two or More.” Every recipe makes enough for either exactly 2 people or for 4 if you’re feeling adventurous. And it’s filled with fantastic recipes. Not one has steered me wrong yet. This is one of our favorites. It’s so easy to make and really delicious. Goes excellently with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Tomato-Basil Soup With Ricotta Dumplings

Serves: 2
Recipe courtesy of Pampered Chef

1 teaspoon basil oil or olive oil
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 (15-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup snipped fresh basil
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup flour
Thinly sliced fresh basil

1. For soup, combine oil and garlic in 3-quart saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes or just until garlic begins to turn light golden brown. Immediately add tomatoes, chicken broth and basil. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. For dumplings, combine cheeses, egg white, salt and pepper in small bowl; mix well. Add flour; stir until just combined. Using a small cookie scoop or ice-cream scoop, scoop dumpling mixture directly into simmering soup. Cook until dumplings float to surface, 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Ladle soup into bowls; sprinkle with thinly sliced basil.
