Parmesan Tomato Basil Soup

Just wanted to say, I have been making this soup for years and it is one of my favourites. I occasionally add in sweet potato or roasted capsicums to add extra vitamins. Thank you for this delicious recipe!


This wonderfully easy, creamy Tomato Basil Soup with Parmesan is 1000X better than any canned/carton variety, is bursting with flavor and requires no roasting or chopping!  This Tomato Soup continues to be a family favorite and deserved a photo makeover because everyone deserves this deliciousness in their lives!
