Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is one of our very favorites!  This is actually one of the first recipes I posted when I began my blog BUT, the photo did not do this amazing recipe justice!  I simply had to update it and share it again with all of you.  Yep, it’s that good :)

AND the rolls in the photo are to die for… they’re called pretzel rolls and my sister got me addicted to them about a year ago!  They’re from Costco.

Roasted Tomato Basil Soup… is just plain delicious!  I love that Gnocchi in there, something about that chewy-little-yumminess that I adore :)

    Yum! This looks irresistable Ruthie! I wasn’t a big fan of tomato soup as a child but now I absolutely love it. Great idea to add the gnocchi to make a hearty meal. Oh, and I’ll be heading to Costco to find those rolls!
