Classic American comfort food! If you're cooking for more than two people, bake the 'grilled' cheese sandwiches. They will all be hot and ready at the same time.

Ingredients – Soup

  • 2 cups Pureed tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning (or dried basil)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt, pepper and honey to taste

Instructions – Soup

  1. Pour tomato puree into medium pot over low-medium heat.
  2. Add one cup water to tomato container. Swirl around to get remaining tomato puree, and pour into pot.
  3. Add herbs and bay leaf.
  4. Let simmer five minutes (or more — now is a good time to make the sandwiches) for herbs to soften and flavors to meld.
  5. Add salt, pepper, and honey to taste. The honey balances out the salt and the acidity.

  • 8 slices of bread
  • 16 slices of cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, jack)
