Tomato Florentine Soup

Tomato Florentine Soup

This Tomato Florentine Soup is easy and full of flavor, which is always good for a chilly winter evening. This is how the recipe was created: "I had this soup at a favorite lunch spot near where I attended law school in Manhattan. I searched for a recipe but couldn't find one, so I made my own. The result is delicious and tastes exactly like the one I had in the city." -Kathleen Scannell Graham, Harwich, MA
