Bread and Tomato Soup (Pappa al Pomodoro)

This thick, porridgelike soup is a hearty way to start a meal.Zoe Schaeffer

A version of this thick, porridgelike soup is served at a quaint trattoria named Coco Lezzone. If you don't have stale bread on hand, dry slices of fresh bread in a 250° oven for about 20 minutes before adding them to the soup.
