This looks good. I’m kind of a tomato newbie. I just started loving them recently. I can’t believe how easy (and delicious) tomato soup can be. It’s one of my faves. I have a very rich recipe that calls for roasting the tomatoes first. It’s super good.
Tomato soup has recently become my favorite. I love the fact that it’s one of those simple recipes that tastes great even if measurements aren’t exact.
