I enjoy cold soups, and this is a good one. Using the tomato and basil sauce as a base is a great idea because you're already starting off with something that's bold and loaded with flavor. I find many gazpachos watery, but the tomato and basil sauce in this recipe gives it good consistency right at the start. The fresh veggies give it some crunch and layers of flavor.

I have never made gazpacho, and since I cook for my parents who follow the pritikin plan I chose to make this. I left out the oil, sugar, and skipped the lemon juice. I microwaved the veggies just to kill off any enzymes. The texture was good even w/ microwaving. It made me think a chunky v8. I think it would be good warm, and might add chicken or rice to it if I make it again.

This made for a really light and healthy light lunch. It could certainly be a first course for a summer dinner or I would consider adding some shrimp and calling it dinner! Very tasty and easy to make in advance. Thanks!

Well done, Renee! I love cold soups and this is a keeper.. I was feeding children as well as adults so I went easy with the hot sauce and allowed folks to add at the table if they chose. I made 8 servings to feed 3 adults and 3 kidlets thinking I would have some left for my lunch tomorrow. Wrong! Thanks.

Absolutely delicious, and SO CLEVER to use pasta sauce as the base!
