Garlic Bread Croutons:

6 pieces store-bought frozen garlic cheese bread, cut into large cubes (about 1 inch)

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan 


1/4 cup olive oil

3 tablespoons jarred pesto, plus more for serving

About 50 ounces condensed tomato soup (I'm using one 26-ounce can and two 10.75-ounce cans)

One 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes 

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for serving 

2 tablespoons sherry cooking wine 

1 tablespoons dried parsley leaves 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 to 4 tablespoons heavy cream 


  1. For the garlic bread croutons: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Toss the cubed garlic bread with the Parmesan and place on a baking sheet. Bake until golden and crisp, 7 to 8 minutes. Set aside.
  3. For the soup: In a saucepot over medium heat, add the olive oil and jarred pesto. Cook the pesto for a couple minutes to allow the flavors to come out. Add the tomato soup, diced tomatoes, Parmesan, sherry, dried parsley and about half the amount of water listed in the soup can instructions. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and simmer until heated through. Stir in the cream.
  4. Serve the soup in bowls and top with the garlic bread croutons. Sprinkle over some additional Parmesan and drizzle with pesto. Serve extra croutons on the side.
