Three Step Tomato Soup

I have been searching for over a year for an easy, tasty tomato soup.  Our favorite is the one at Panera and I could not find one that I could make at home, that came close, until today….I even bought a pretzel roll and carved it out to make a bread bowl.  It was a HUGE hit…both my girls and my parents LOVED it…I hope you do too!!! Bon Appetit!!!
