Chunky Tomato Soup

Chunky tomato soup with cheddar cheese croutons is the PERFECT way to celebrate National Grilled Cheese month. Yes, April is Nation Grilled cheese month which is probably one of the best months of the year.

Annnnd, what goes the with grilled cheese?? Yep, you guessed it, tomato soup.

I used to HATE tomato soup. And when I say hate, I would gag if I even smelled it when my sister would eat it. But what I didn’t realize back then is that it was condensed canned soup. Condensed canned tomato soup would my ignite my gag reflex. I really didn’t know there were any other types of tomato soup, like, um…homemade.

You guys, either my gag reflex issues have been cured or I am a complete tomato soup convert.
I can’t get enough of it. It is so warm and comforting. I wish I could say it remind me of when I was a kid, but it doesn’t. I can though say that it reminds me that I am an adult and I can make my own delicious food.

Using the 2 different kinds to Tuttorosso tomatoes make it so quick and simple to make. You can literally have this soup on the table in 20 minutes!!

It doesn’t even need to be tomato season because you are using the Tuttorosso.
Every time you use a can of Tuttorosso Tomatoes, you know you aren’t compromising.
These canned tomatoes are picked at the peak of their summer ripeness and treated with the same care and attention as any Nona’s backyard garden.
