Round Two – Tomato Basil and Broccoli Casserole 1


Wow that Tomato Basil Sour Cream Soup was delicious!  After the second meal of it though, I was ready for something a little heartier.  I’m still jumping between the rain and the sun here (while secretly hoping tanning weather will arrive).  In the meantime, I turned the soup into a casserole.  The best thing ladies is I threw in a bunch of broccoli, so when I went back for seconds (and okay, I’ll be honest…thirds), I didn’t feel guilty.

If you didn’t make the soup, canned will do in a pinch and if you don’t have broccoli try cauliflower, or even some salted and drained zucchini.
