This is a quick 6 ingredient recipe that will have your family asking for seconds. The  richness of the creamy tomato soup and the crunchy exterior but smooth interior mini bites of grilled cheese, made even more gooey by the heat from the soup.  The flavors do remind me of Lunches served at middle school.  I liked very few of them, but I always ordered lunch when Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese were served.


  • 1 Jar 26 oz da Giulia Tomato Basil Sauce
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 slices bread of choice( I used a multi grain)
  • 4 ounces cheese( I used gruyere, but any cheese of choice that melts well will do)
  • 1 tbsp. Butter or butter spray
