  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic minced (4 cloves)
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup orecchiette pasta cooked and drained
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 2 Tablespoons light butter

Make the tomato soup:

  • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until the onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken stock, tomatoes, salt and pepper (to taste). Bring the soup to a boil and then lower the heat to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  • After the soup has simmered for 15 minutes, add the orecchiette. Add the heavy cream as well and simmer for 10 more minutes, stirring frequently.

Make the grilled cheese bites:

  • Heat a grill pan to medium heat. Spread each slice of bread with 1/2 Tablespoon of light butter. Lay one butter side down on the grill pan.
  • When it's hot, add 1oz of cheese to this slice of bread. Add the next piece of bread butter side up and flip the grilled cheese
  • Cook until the cheese is melted and the top is golden brown. Repeat with the other pieces of bread and remaining cheese.
  • Cut up the grilled cheese into small bites and enjoy with a bowl of tomato soup.
