Simple Vegetable Soup in Tomato Broth

For the cold Fall and Winter nights, this is a perfect soup with some Salad and Bread on the side.

I made a Cesar Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Garden Cherry Tomatoes tossed in home made dressing and topped with Herbed Croutons.

And picked up some Brown Bread (Cheesecake Factory).

Kids love this soup, maybe because of the simplicity.
