I used a can of San Marzano crushed tomatoes (didn't want chunky soup) and fresh parsley, otherwise followed the recipe. As a kid, tomato soup always was my favorite, and it's still right up there in the top 3 as an adult. Considering there are no fresh tomatoes in it, this actually is a pretty nice soup, tasting a lot like tomato bisque, and not so much like something out of a can. Do let it cook for a little while (maybe 10-15 minutes), as the flavor does improve with a little simmering. Thanks, Rachel, I like it and will make again.
I was surprised how good this was, but I made some changes to the recipe. Per other reviews, I doubled the batch and pureed half the canned tomatoes to reduce tomato chunks. I didn't have parsley so I used dried basil. About the milk, since I doubled the batch, I was prepared to add 4 cups of the whole milk. I added 3 cups and I wish I had cut it back even more. The taste of the soup was excellent before adding the milk (I taste at different stages) and the volume (3 cups) in my opinion diluted the taste too much. I suggest putting in half the milk and then tasting it before adding the rest so you can adjust to your liking. I'm going to try fresh basil next time because the dried basil was an excellent addition. This I think is an great base recipe that is forgiving with regard to substitutions. I served with grilled provolone/American cheese and ham sandwichs ... family loved it!
I really liked this soup! Like other reviewers, I swapped diced tomatoes for crushed tomatoes, white pepper for black pepper, and whole milk for 1% milk. It turned out really well. I've also tried it with heavy cream instead of milk. Just use a little less than called for and it's so rich and creamy. This will be a regular in my house during winter from now on!
LOVE THIS! So easy and fast. I did change a few things... I seasoned the tomatoes with salt and black pepper then ran them through the food processor, added basil and traded the milk for heavy cream. We made provolone and mozz grilled cheese sandwiches for dipping! We need to double the recipe next time.
