Yummy Tomato Soup

I have wanted to participate in Sarah's "The Proof is in the Pin" link up for awhile now, but I haven't recreated any pins in a LONG time, but this week I finally did something that is pin-worth.


Because I'm always incredibly long winded I need to tell the back-story of my pin.

I absolutely love tomato soup - not that yucky Campbell's tomato soup stuff but a good thick basily tomato soup. I even blogged about my love for tomato soup somewhere on this blog, but I don't feel like going back through my archives and finding it. Knock yourself out.

Anyways, I love a good tomato soup but they always seem way too involved for me. If a food takes too much work in the kitchen it quickly loses my interest. No matter how good it tastes.

Side note, if I had unlimited money I would hire a chef ASAP

Well one night I was at my friend Ashley's house and she had prepared the most delicious tomato soup ever. It was perfect consistency, perfect amount of basil and perfect taste. I was in tomato heaven.

I couldn't believe it when she told me that it was from pinterest. So I looked it up and made it that weekend. And Luke loved it also! It has since become a favorite in our house.

The pin is Tomato Basil Soup and GO MAKE IT RIGHT NOW.


Ashley added cheese tortellini to hers so of course I did the same and it is SOOO good and makes it more filling. 

Let me know if you try it!
