This hearty soup is hubby approved, and it’s actually pretty easy to make.  It’s creamy, comforting, and so good!  The base of the soup is the tomato parmesan, so if you don’t happen to have the tortellini or the sausage on hand, you could leave those out and it would still be a super yummy dish.  I don’t usually have cream on hand, so I usually substitute that part of the recipe with a roux to thicken it up a bit (you’ll see that alternative at the bottom of the recipe).  However, for...

Here’s a great way to use up any crusty bread that’s getting a little too crusty.  I had some baguettes that were past their prime, so I decided to please my crouton-loving son and make some homemade croutons.  Garlicky, salty yumminess!   Homemade Croutons 2015-09-15 19:51:16 Write a review Save Recipe Print Ingredients Baguette cubed into 1/2" squares Generous olive...
