Recipe for tomato soup with bacon and macaroni

The best recipe for an easy, quick and homemade tomato soup with bacon, elbow pasta and fresh parsley. This recipe for tomato soup is simple and creamy, and we absolutely love it. The added leeks, chili, cream and tomatoes make it so good. We always serve it with a scoop of creme fraiche, crispy fried bacon, macaronis and fresh parsley. This is definitely one of the best homemade soups that we know of. It is always a sure hit when we serve it at home - especially if you serve it with a side of grilled cheese!

Fresh or canned tomato?

We use diced tomatoes from a can but you can also replace them with fresh tomatoes. In that case just use the same amount. This is especially delicious when it’s tomato season and you can get some super tasty tomatoes. We do find canned tomatoes easier to use, so most of the time we make it that way. It still tastes really, really good.

Homemade tomato soup

This is one of the best soups you can make in our opinion. If you love tomato soup as much as us, definitely try this version. It has a little twist of chili which lifts the flavor and complements the otherwise mild soup very well.

It is very easy to make home made tomato soup. It’s fast and cheap dinner that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients nor time in the kitchen, so that’s perfect after a long day. If you have leftovers you can easily freeze them so you’ll have an easy dinner ready for another day. 

With this recipe you get a creamy soup willed with flavor. We add cooking cream to achieve that. You can also replace that with heavy cream if you want it more thick and creamy, or you can even use creme fraiche or cream cheese.
