I wanted to like this. I love creamy tomato soup and make it all the time. But I was looking for something a little different to try and decided to give this a shot. Good tomatoes are not to be found at the store right now, so I used a can of high quality fire-roasted diced tomatoes (my favorite brand that I use all the time), and I used jarred, pureed tomatoes instead of juice (again a brand that's my favorite that I use all the time). The end result just didn't cut it for me. It was more cream/butter flavor with a very slight tomato flavor, but without the onions and garlic I usually use, it was pretty bland. I have never used butter in my tomato soup (always use olive oil) nor do I normally use more than a quarter cup or so of cream, so this one was really too buttery/creamy for me. I did not find the basil flavor too much. Thanks for the idea to try, but I'll have to stick to my usual version.
