Staying with the soup theme this week in order to warm the tummies and the souls with some comfort food during this wild Nor’Easter blowing over the region I came up with this Creamy Tomato Mac and Cheese soup. I remember when I worked at the hospital the lovely ladies in the coffee shop used to serve something similar so I put my thinking cap on and came up with a recipe.
This soup tastes like satin in your mouth with the melted sharp cheddar mixed among tomatoes and little elbow macaroni’s. I also thought I would turn it up a notch and serve grilled cheese croutons! OMG!! If you like cheese you’re going to want to give this a try!
According to Mom (AKA Julia) and Sandro it was delightful and hit the spot. If I must say so myself it was very good and brought back some fond and funny memories of eating in the coffee shop!! The “Kane Girls” were not exactly the favorite customers in the coffee shop because we each had our preferences and it goes something like this: “can I have my bagel toasted well with my butter on the side and could I have an extra plate too” and “could I have my Pepsi in a plastic cup?” or “instead of the turkey and ham on the chef salad I like bacon crumbled on the top.” You get the picture but really the ladies in their pink coats or whatever color they were learned to love us and all of our Kane-isms!
Enjoy this soup it is a great twist to your tomato out of the can!
