    Scoutie's Note:

    This is VERY delicious, wonderful comfort food on an early Fall day! I don't have a food mill, so used an immersion blender and then a colander for straining. I suppose a blender or food processor would work as well, using a colander for straining. This freezes well,(without adding the cream), thawed it out, heated, then added the cream. This is adapted from Barefoot Contessa, Back To Basics, I love Ina Garten! Hope you enjoy.

      I used fresh tomatoes from my garden : italian and heirloom tomatoes. I'm sure I used more than 1/4 cup of basil. I used heavy cream and the whole 3/4 cup. I didn't put it through a food mill. I wanted it chunky. And it's yummy like that. Thanks Scoutie :) Made for 123 hit wonders

      Followed recipe as listed except for only using 1/4 cup cream, just because I wanted a more tomatoey soup. This turned out lovely. I really enjoyed this witn Boomette's Smashed Veggie-Cheese Sandwiches. Will make this again.
