I made something similar the other day with basically all the need-to-go veggies in my fridge... and then I remembered your post about the parmesan rind! In it went... and out came a delicious soup!

I'll be making this soup next so my husband can continue to think I am a genius in the kitchen. ; )

I basically lived on this soup while I was pregnant and couldn't eat it for a year after I gave birth. I honestly had it at least 3 times a week. I was addicted to it. I might start making it again this winter bc I miss it. your looks delicious.

Perfect cozy treat for this season. Love anything to do with tomatoes. Got my eye on your ideas in the next posts.
