Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve this creamy soup with a crisp mixed green salad, and cooked lean meat, poultry or fish.
Can't find tomato-flavored focaccia? You can use plain focaccia bread or a French bread baguette instead. Mix 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste, 1/2 tsp. each dried oregano leaves and dried basil leaves, and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder until blended. Cut bread into thin slices; spread with tomato paste mixture. Place on baking sheet. Bake in 350ºF oven 5 to 6 min. or until lightly toasted. Serve with the soup as is, or cut into cubes and serve individual bowls of soup.
