Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

I saw this recipe for Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup on pinterest from 365 Days of Slow Cooking, and also on Sisters' Cafe.  So, I decided that I should make it along with some Macaroni Grill style Rosemary Bread.  

As I was finishing up making this soup, I realized that it might have been a mistake to make it for dinner.  It looked delicious, but I remembered that my husband does not like tomato soup of any kind.  And my kids don't really like tomato soup either.  I decided to cook up some pasta that my kids could toss in their soup.

When I served dinner this is what happened from my family:
  • 7 year old:  ate her bowl with a little complaining and said, "Mom, this is a TINY bit good."
  • 5 year old:  ate a lot of his bowl until he got distracted by something and left the table.  
  • 2 year old:  wouldn't touch it 
  • hubby:  (who worked late and ate later) tried a bite and said that he was sorry, but he never has liked tomato soup. I made him a chicken salad sandwich on rosemary bread.
So, lucky for me...I have lots of soup in my freezer ready for me to enjoy for lunch.  I loved it and might make it again for lunch with the my girlfriends.

P.S.  The Macaroni Grill bread was gone in a flash.  My family loved it!
