Our cold fall weather once again made me turn to soup to feed my family.  This time I decided to try Rainy Day Foods Tomato Basil Soup.  Rainy Day Foods has an assortment of quick and easy meals and the Tomato Basil Soup is one of them.  Because it is so easy (all you have to do is add water), I was worried about the flavor.  The rich, creamy flavor was such a surprise to me, and even my kids who aren’t fans of tomato soup liked it.  The package says to add 1 cup of water to ½ cup of mix.  I felt it was a little thick so I added a little more water.  After it simmers for about 5 minutes it is ready to eat.  My family really enjoyed it alone, but you could add pasta or vegetables for a variation.  I personally thought it would be really good over ravioli as it would make a nice tomato sauce.  Rainy Day Foods carries this soup in a 10.5 oz. mylar bag or a #10 can.  It also comes in their Quick and Easy Emergency Bucket and in their 2 person 72 hour kit.  This is definitely one to try.
