Sundays during the Autumn and Winter months are SOUP-er Sundays at our house. We always have soup for dinner, mostly because it's easy. Tomato Parmesan Soup is one of my favorites. I like to serve each bowl of soup with a crispy grilled cheese sandwich or a slice of Focaccia bread.
Tomato Parmesan Soup
2 cans (10.75 oz) condensed tomato soup
2 cups chicken broth
4 cups milk (or substitute 2 cups of the milk for half and half)
1/2 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (plus extra for garnish if deired)
In a large pot, combine the soup, broth, milk, tomatoes and seasonings. Heat through, over medium heat, stirring frequently. Right before serving, stir in cheese. Sprinkle each serving with additional cheese if desired.
This recipe also cooks up well in a slow cooker. Just combine the soup, broth, milk, tomatoes, and seasonings. Stir to combine. Cook on low heat 3-4 hours. An hour before serving, stir in shredded cheese.
