Hi guys! Today was a cloudy day in Las Vegas which meant that I was making comfort food. Because that’s the best kind of food.
The title may confuse you a bit. But yeah, that says healthy. I love healthy foods and eat the healthiest foods I can! Except on the weekends. When I bake.
But back to the subject. It was cloudy and I wanted grilled cheese and tomato soup. So that’s what I made.
This is almost like a semi-home cooking sort of a deal. I mean, I do used canned soup. I’m sorry. I’ll try harder next time.
It’s probably just about as simple as you think.
1 can low-sodium or “heart healthy” tomato soup
1 can of skim milk
1 cup quinoa pasta (found in the organic section but you could always use whole wheat or regular pasta)
1/2 Tbs. butter
Meanwhile, in a separate pot, mix the milk and the tomato soup and cook it on medium heat until it is heated through.
Drain the noodles and add it to the soup.
Lastly, I sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top to get melty. It was a good thing. I recommend it.
And like I said, I had it with a whole wheat grilled cheese sandwich.
I also always use 2% cheese, which I know a lot of people say doesn’t melt, but it does.
I hope you like this simple, easy-to-put-together lunch!
