Creamy Tomato Soup

29 Feb

I found the idea for this recipe on Food Network’s website in a feature called “50 Ways to Use Pasta Sauce” and since I’ve started making my own sauce it was perfect for using the stock pile of store bought sauce I had. Of course, I tweaked it to our tastes and it turned out so well – flavorful, hearty and so quick and easy! What’s not to love? Serve with your favorite grilled cheese sandwich & you’re in business.

Time: 10 minutes             Serves: 2-4


  • 1 32oz. jar pasta sauce (I used Classico tomato basil)
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • pinch nutmeg
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • crushed red pepper flakes to taste

How to make it

  • Combine all ingredients in a pot and mix well. Heat just to boiling, stir, and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Delicious as is or you can serve with a sprinkle of cheese, some fresh basil, crusty bread, or your favorite crackers. Of course grilled cheese is always a great accompaniment.
