I have tried so many Tomato Basil Soup recipes and nothing compares to the recipe my sweet friend was given by her sweet friend! And guess what — I was told I can share with you, too! Have you ever had la Madeleine Tomato Basil Soup!? It’s totally my favorite and this knockoff is so similar it’s like I’m eating out in the comfort of my home. And it’s SUPER EASY to make — a tried and true recipe that my family loves!
