I often make grilled cheese sandwiches to go with the soup, but this time I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to hassle with the whole making grilled cheese sandwiches….I know I sound like a total baby. Instead of grilled cheese, I cut a baguette in half lengthwise and then in half crosswise. I put a small amount of butter and a small amount of mozzarella cheese on the baguette. Popped it into a 400 degree oven. When it was toasty and beginning to brown, pulled it out, and voila! Perfect simple tomato soup accompaniment.
This Valentine’s Day dinner pairs perfectly with the cute Valentine’s Day Chocolate Chip Cookies I made. You could also make the cute little Valentine’s Day Treat Bags to make dessert a little bit of a surprise.
Below is my Tomato soup recipe for you. I adapted it from The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook.
