  • 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
  • drizzle of balsamic vinegar


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
