Fall is a wonderful time for tomatoes.
This soup is crazy easy! It makes it even easier if you have a pressure cooker. If not, then you can just boil it in a regular pot too. My kids just love this soup with a dollop of cream in it. My favorite topping for this soup is a handful of shredded cheese and tons of hot sauce. It just melts into this yummy gooeyness. Throw in a few pieces of croutons or toasted bread in to add crunch.
