Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy tomato soupCreamy tomato soup is always a favorite for kids and adults alike. And you never need a special occasion to make and enjoy it. This simple recipe is quick and easy so the kids can help prepare it with you. They especially like using the blender or food processor.

You can also modify this recipe to your own taste. For example if you don’t like croutons then leave them out. If you want to be fancy you can always try thinly sliced cappicola on top with the grated asiago cheese. And if you ever have leftovers (which never happens) you can always use it in a spaghetti sauce.

Take this recipe and see what makes it right for you.

Enjoy.
