You can pick the flavor profile by the marinara sauce you choose. I would suggest you get your favorite brand of marinara and then turn it into this creamy and delicious tomato soup.

I also love that you can choose the sugar levels in this soup. If you want to make a lower sugar soup, I would suggest getting a no sugar added marinara sauce and then adjusting this recipes sugar to the level you want.

This soup tastes great with grilled cheese sandwiches. Try my sheet pan grilled cheese sandwiches for a easy, hands off meal that feeds a crowd.
