    Delicious soup. Served with parmesan crisps and garlic bread.

    I made the soup one day ahead with the orzo, but adding the cream when reheating. Soup was easy to make, good, and kept well. Croutons were pretty good, but I'd prefer a grilled cheese sandwich on the side.

    This was well received by my family but I don't feel like I've found my favorite tomato soup recipe yet.

    This is a very good recipe. I only made the soup and my guests really enjoyed it after a long flight. I made Jamie Olivers cheesy scones (Jamie magazine march 2017) to go with it.

    The perfect tomato soup. I did not add saffron---seemed to tamper with the pureness of flavor but one day maybe I will be brave enough. Definitely my new go to tomato soup!

    I wasn't crazy about the saffron in this recipe, and would definitely make it again using basil and oregano, or just adding some prepared pesto. The orzo makes it a bit heartier and the kids liked the addition of pasta in the soup.

    It comes together from scratch with barely more effort than heating up some Campbell’s—and we don’t think we need to tell you it’s worth that teensy extra investment of work.
