Homemade Tomato Soup
For this simple recipe, the ingredients you need include 5-tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, ¼-cup of grated parmesan cheese and 10-pieces of Ritz crackers. Aside from these, you also need to bring ½-cup milk, a piece of dried oregano and a couple of basil leaves. In addition, you can give the dish a richer taste and flavor by adding a piece of finely chopped garlic as well as a piece of finely chopped onion. Furthermore, buy a can of tomato sauce and ½-can of whole peeled tomatoes.
Once you have these items, set your stove to medium-high heat. Place the pot on top of it then put the garlic, basil, oregano and onion. Saute the ingredients and wait for the garlic to become clear.

Add more cheese on top of each bowl before serving. Enjoy.
