This soup was so easy, I almost feel bad posting about it. I can’t believe I’ve never made this before! I had a whole carton of red, ripe tomatoes from Costco sitting on top of my fridge, just on the edge of going south. I had to do something. I’m not a huge fan of raw tomatoes, so when I saw this post over at SammyW I knew what I had to do.
I had this today for lunch and I am in love. I can’t wait to make it again and see what other additions I can make!
