Tomato Bisque

    This was VERY good. I added 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan to the bisque and it was delicious. Next time I will know to double the recipe because I served 8 people this soup and there was barely enough to go around.

    I made this delicious recipe today using tomatoes from our family garden and milk from our dairy goats. Not only was it cost effective to feed our family of six children, but all of them loved it. (Next time I will double the batch!)
