With the holiday of loving only a few days away I figured I share this red soup, cheesy I know. I have never been a huge fan of tomato soup unless I’m dipping a grilled cheese sandwich in it. I swear, I would eat the sandwich and then stop eating the soup afterwards. I think it’s just because I thought it was too plain or didn’t have enough of something for me to really enjoy it as its own meal. Does anyone else agree? I was beyond happy when I found this Crockpot Parmesan Basil Tomato Soup because its creamy and loaded with cheese which made it that much better on its own.
I won’t lie, I still definitely paired it with a grilled cheese sandwich the first night we served it, but we had ton of leftovers I was able to eat for lunch all week without any additives. I’m sure you all know by now Kirby and I are lovers of the crockpot and this recipe is packed with flavor, but so easy to make. I mean, it includes pesto so how could I not enjoy it? It also has a really good texture which I think helps with eating it on its own. The extra cheesiness + the added basil flavoring definitely puts this crockpot parmesan basil tomato soup at the very top of my list for tomato soups, by far!
