Tomato Thyme Soup with Arugula Topping

The combination of whole canned tomatoes and tomato paste give this soup plenty of flavor without having to chop a single tomato. An arugula and ricotta salata topper adds peppery, salty notes and a nice change in texture.

Pair this soup with a grilled cheese sandwich for an easy weeknight meal.
