Red lentil soup
Zuppa cremoso di lenticchie rosse
In Puglia people like unlikely combinations of starchy foods like pasta e riso and pasta e patate. This red lentil soup with pasta follows the tradition for low-cost meals that are rich on carbohydrates, and it is really delicious. Especially, when it’s based on a strong, clear, home-made soup or a good quality prefab. A sprinkling of fresh chervil gives the creamy lentils a subtle liquorice note, but you can use parsley or cilantro (coriander) instead.
