If you love fresh tomato soup, check out my simple and delicious recipe.
I’m one of those people who prefers winter to summer. Here in Texas, the summers are sweltering.
Now that we are in the last few days of chilly weather, I’m trying to get in my share of hot recipes. Once summer hits, I will be looking for colder meal options.
One chilly weather favorite is tomato soup. However, I’m pretty particular about it. I dont like anything too creamy. I want it to taste like fresh tomatoes with a little bit of seasoning. I also like it to be just a little bit cheesy.
This recipe is a family favorite. It combines fresh ingredients with seasoning and a little parmesan cheese flavor.
My daughter, a pretty picky eater, loves this recipe. It is really easy to put together.
To add varietyto your soup meal, consider changing up the toppings.

In my opinion, the ideal bowl of tomato soup is paired with a grilled cheese. However, it tastes pretty amazing by itself.
To add even more fun to this bowl of soup, consider stirring in noddles. I would cook tiny noodles and add about 1/4 cup to the bowl of soup.
I hope you enjoy this delicious tomato soup recipe!
