Year of Soup Recipe Challenge Week 3- Easy and Delicious Creamy Tomato Soup

Woo hoo! This post catches me up for my Year of Soup challenge!! Been so busy and have so much I want to write about, I just wish I had more time (blame that pesky full-time job of mine...just kidding).

So here we are in week 3 of the Mimi's Kitchen Year of Soup challenge, and the recipe I have for you is quick, easy, and fabulous! I came up with this recipe one day when I was trying to figure out what to do with a half-full jar of leftover pasta sauce (hubby had been making Lasagna). I did some experimenting, and the end result was a creamy tomato soup that was better than anything I had ever had from a can! I like this recipe because it takes a plain ole' jar of pasta sauce, an inexpensive ingredient most of us already have in the cupboard, and turns it into a rich, herb-infused creamy tomato soup you have to taste to believe! Trust me, once you experience the depth of flavor is this awesome soup, you won't be in a hurry to open that little red and white "cream of" soup can anytime soon!

Easy and Delicious Creamy Tomato Soup

1 (24-oz.) jar pasta sauce
2 cups chicken broth or water
½ cup half and half
Pinch of nutmeg
1 (14.5-oz.) can Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp. Italian seasoning

Combine all ingredients in a large soup pot. Simmer over medium heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
