This week we had homemade tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches – pure comfort!

Here’s How to Do it:

Start with lightly sautéing the garlic and rosemary. Add the olive oil to a hot, heavy skillet. Stir in the garlic and rosemary and sauté on low for just a minute or two.

Add the tomatoes, smoked paprika and lemon pepper, and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Allow to cool for about 10 minutes.

Put the tomato mixture in a blender with the tomato sauce and other remaining ingredients.

Blend until everything is smooth and well mixed.

Garnish with croutons and a little parm –
