I love a good homemade soup and my kids love tomato soup and grilled cheese so this was a win win for all of us. This soup is full of amazing flavors. Super easy to make as well. If you don’t have an immersion blender I highly recommend getting one, they make making soups so much easier. I have this one and love it. I lightly based this soup off Ina Garten’s recipe but I added carrots, Parmesan Cheese and heavy cream for extra flavors. Serve this with grilled cheese or a salad and you have a killer weeknight meal! enjoy!
