Notes: I eat tomato soup from Boudin Bakery all the time at work, and I thought, I can make this super fast and easy! I also used to make as similar soup when I worked in a café in Georgia. You can add any seasoning you like, but I like simple salt and pepper on this one, and the basil adds just enough. The Parm also makes a perfect little touch. I hope you like it, and see how easy it is to make!
