Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

I made this soup after a friend brought my family an entire bag of tomatoes from the farmers’ market.  I hate for produce to go bad so I knew we needed to make something that would use a lot of tomatoes.  Luckily, this recipe for Tomato Gorgonzola Soup does just that.  Its flavors also compliment the changing of the seasons.  Enjoy!

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup -- it tastes like the end of summer and beginning of fall in my mouth
