Zuppa di Pomodoro

Tomatoes will no longer be in season in Europe. I went early to the farmers market in Gent made friends with a nice lady and got the best of the best. I did had to use one can of ripped tomatoes. Public relations came in handy, they always save the best products for theire best clients you just have to be polite and kind to get the goods.
