Hello everyone!

Our friends and family living in the north hills of Pittsburgh may not want to hear this but…

What’s the ONLY thing that the north hills has on the south hills? You may of guessed it, Nordstrom. The store is pretty amazing, not too mention, they have an amazing tomato soup in their cafe.

Our goal this week was to find a recipe that was VERY close to it. We did some research and came up with the recipe below. We made it ourselves and LOVED it. Sure, it may not be identical to their tomato soup but it’s very close. We hope you love this week’s featured Fuse meal as much as we did! And yes, this is probably the least clean out of our hundreds of clean recipes. That’s okay, it’s good to have a few moderately clean recipes to mix things up:)
