I loved the idea of a creamy tomato soup at home that is similar to my fave luncheon hot spot, wthout the price! Your recipe was a great start for me, but I wasn't able to make it to the grocer for fresh tomatos and wanted to make it a bit healthier. I'm certain the recipe is wonderful as-is, but I deviated quite a bit: I used a large (dbl) can of diced tomato, 1 can of tomato soup. I cooked on med-low for 30 min, then pureed in the blender. I then returned to pan and whipped in 1/2 c of whipping cream, 1/4 c of 2% milk, 1/4 tsp of basil, 1/4 tsp of minced garlic, and a dash of crushed red pepper. I cooked it for about 30 more mins. on med-low. It served the 3 of us well and my boyfriend excitedly took the leftovers to work the next day. He wants to know when I'll be making it again!
