  • 1 pkg frozen Great Value Tomato Basil Soup
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella sliced
  • 3 roma tomatoes sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh basil with leaves torn off

  1. Place frozen bag of soup into a large stockpot. Cover with water and heat to boiling. Cook for 35 minutes or until contents of bag is hot.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a countertop grill or stovetop griddle over medium heat. Prepare sandwiches by layering sliced mozzarella, tomatoes, basil leaves, and optional balsamic vinegar on top of bread.

  3. Grill or press sandwiches for 3 - 5 minutes (flip and cook on other side as well if using a stovetop griddle). Allow sandwiches to cool slightly.

  4. Carefully remove bag from boiling water in stockpot using tongs. Allow soup to set for 5 minutes. Carefully cut open bag and divide hot soup among four bowls. Sprinkle croutons over soup. Serve each bowl alongside caprese panini sandwiches.
