After visiting the Mercato Centrale in Florence, Italy, a world-famous market, Mary Ann is inspired to create two classic Tuscan soups starting with a hearty, chunky, stick-to-your-ribs Pappa al Pomodoro (Tomato Pap) then finishing up with a smooth and creamy, Passato di Peperoni Gialli (Cibreo's Yellow Pepper Soup) that looks like golden velvet and tastes like food for the gods.
