Dinner @ the W’s| Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

When the weather starts to get cold, there is nothing better than a hot bowl of delicious soup!

I absolutely love soups and for that reason I have started to make my own a lot more. Recently, I tried a new soup recipe that turned out fantastic and one I will be sure to make again!

Bon Appetit!!
