Tomato and Orzo Soup with Gorgonzola

Tomato and Orzo Soup with Gorgonzola

With a snowstorm going on outside, I was craving a warm comfort soup. Inspired by the tomato soup of a well-known local chef and four boxes of orzo in the pantry, I came up with this yummy soup. Serve topped with buttered croutons.
