"Best done with fresh ripe tomatoes, but also very good with canned tomatoes. If you use fresh herbs, you will need more than dried (in proportion, 3 times more). I ate this soup for the first time when I visited an aunt. She made this just for me. Over the years, I made my own version to match the taste I remembered. Here it is. Bon appetit." — Lise P.

I left the marjoram out only because our family does not care for that spice. I made no other changes. Nice basic cream of tomato soup. The kids raved about it. I paired this with homemade italian grilled cheese sandwiches. GREAT comfort food meal.
Okay recipe. It's definitely missing something though that I can't put my finger on. Still shopping around for a great tomato recipe though. Note: I would definitely blend the tomatoes. Not blending is the difference between creamy soup and chunky soup.
This came out quite delicious. I did have to make a few changes to mine. For instance, I used a Tbsp of Italian seasoning instead of the dried herbs, I also added a bit more salt than it called for since my soup came out a bit bland. Finally I had to thicken up my milk more with roux (mixture of melted butter and flour) before I added it to the tomatoes but my tomatoes were very watery. Besides that ;) The recipe came out delicious and was definately the best tomato soup I have tasted!
I loved this wonderful recipe (very similar to my mother-in-laws) using 2 - 14.5oz canned whole tomatoes that I just mashed up with a spoon. I also only used about 1 and a half cups of milk. It was a big hit, even with my 3 toddlers who have never had tomato soup before.
VERY easy! I will make it again but next time I will leave out the spices (except salt and pepper).
I've been searching for a tomato soup recipe that tastes like it took hours but in reality is simple and quick. Finally I found one! I like my tomato soup thick and a little chunky, so I used 4 cans of diced and peeled tomatoes. When heating them I added a Tbsp butter, lots of salt/pepper, and tsp sugar. Once it was hot and lost most of its liquid I blended half the tomatoes and added a small can of tomato paste, when that was smooth I barely blended the rest of the tomatoes in. I did not have marjoram and could not find the basil in my spice drawer so I used an Italian mix that had the three spices a long with garlic... It was discusting! Since then I dont add the spices and it is great. Thanks for this EASY recipe that is flexible to meet anyone's taste!!!
Very good, basic recipe!
My toddler son refuses to drink milk, so I have to sneak his calcium in where ever I can. Someone had suggested canned tomato soup, but it is packed with corn syrup, so I thought I'd make some homemade.
He loves this soup and I do, too! Easy to make and tasty. I didn't have any marjoram, but it was great without it. In a pinch, I make this soup with a 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes and it is wonderful. Excellent!
This is a great light soup to make. I used the canned tomatoes and slightly pureed them. With grilled cheese sandwiches it was a quick and easy meal!
