Tomato Parmesan Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

Cathy Jacobsen


Hands Down...This is the best tomato soup I have ever tried and that is saying a lot because I am a self proclaimed tomato soup critic.
This is slightly chunky so if you prefer to blend it a hand blender works wonders. The grilled cheese croutons are a favorite for kids and adults alike!
