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.
Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup on 365 Days of Slow Cooking. The only things that I changed was that I used half of the butter and flour (only 1/4 c. each butter and flour) and it thickened up just fine. I also used fat free half and half. Yum!
P.S. The Macaroni Grill bread was gone in a flash. My family loved it!
