  • For Soup:
  • 1 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco® or to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For Sandwich:
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 slices (about 3/4 ounce each) Roth Prairie Sunset® Cheese
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Fresh basil, sliced scallions and/or pesto, for serving (optional)


  1. Combine tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, Worcestershire and Tabasco in saucepan, then stir to blend. Bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and season to taste.
  2. Heat heavy skillet over medium heat. Butter one side of bread slices. Place 2 slices, butter-side-down, in a hot skillet. Arrange cheese and avocado slices over bread. Close sandwiches, placing top butter-side up.
  3. Grill until bottom slice is toasted and cheese begins to melt, about 2 minutes. Flip sandwiches. Grill until cheese is fully melted and bread is toasted.
  4. Ladle soup into bowls; serve with scallions, fresh basil and/or pesto, if desired. Plate the sandwich.
