This version , which is the colour shown in the photo above , is more Italian feel than the previous one , and tastes accordingly.
Start with chopped onion and garlic, sautéed in butter, shiny , but not brown. Stir tomato paste with a bit of white wine and pour it gently over the onion mixture . Stir constantly in the pot , which must be on a low heat . Tomatoes, stir in and then sprinkle one with parsley , oregano and lemon zest . Add the white wine and then add the stock . Season with salt and pepper and simmer for about 1/2 hour. Check it occasionally and stir it with a wooden spoon. Finally add the Worcestershire sauce and stir well.

If you like the soup extra strong, you can sprinkle it with paprika at an early stage.

The soup can be strained – or served as it is.
