The other day I went to Sweet Tomatoes and was loving their Sweet Tomato Basil Soup. I decided I needed to make something similar at home. And I made something even better. If you love tomato soup, you will love this soup (AND bonus it’s very very easy.)
I know you all love this recipe for the tomato basil parmesan soup (it’s my most popular recipe of all time). But I’m hear to tell you that this recipe is JUST as good. AND it’s easier. AND it gets less dishes dirty. AND you will love it. What are you waiting for???
2 things: You must use the caramelized tomato paste (it gives it an amazing flavor boost) and you must use the crushed tomatoes. Please don’t substitute diced. However, I bet if you really wanted you could use half and half instead of the heavy cream.
For my kids, I added it some frozen raviolis and let the hot soup cook them. They loved it and it turned it more into a whole meal for them.
I hope you love this soup as much as I did!
