Roasted Tomato Soup

There is something so comforting about a bowl of tomato soup and I'd say it's even better when the tomatoes are roasted. Add this no-knead artisan bread and you've got yourself the perfect meal! This soup is so fun to make and the result is amazing. We loved it and I think you will, too.
