Fire Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

At the end of last month, my blog friend Branny at Branny Boils Over, annouced she was going to have a Charity Souper Bowl! For every soup recipe she gets during the month, she and her husband are going to donate $1 per post to the ASPCA!
While I don't have any animals in pets in my life, my sister does! So this post is dedicated to her boyfriends cats Snoop and Zuk I know that he loves these cats more than anything and would do anything for them (I wish I could have found pictures of them!)

While I am barely squeaking in with this entry, 
I am so happy to get something made so she can make it to her goal!

I love tomato soup but have never made it so this recipe was definitely something right up my alley! The original recipe didn't call for salt and pepper (which I really don't understand but oh well!) so I have added them in.

I'm not a big tomato soup fan, but this one actually sounds great! I think including the basil and orzo would make it really tasty. Thanks for sharing! said...
