Great flavors. It has been a long time since I have eaten at La Madeline but if memory serves correct this is pretty close if not it. I did reduce the recipe by half. Used 2 cans of diced cut tomatoes. One of which was pureed in the Vita-Mix and some Penzey's Chicken Soup Base added for extra flavor. Not having the heavy cream I added in some evaporated milk. I can see me making this again.

Excellent and easy to put together. To make it less rich, I used lowfat milk and half the butter.

This tasted great, very authentic. Added some sour cream as a topper, excellent.

Really GOOD! I used 1/2 & 1/2 in place of the cream with excellent results. I also used more basil and a mix of canned diced and fresh diced tomatoes.

I used more basil than the recipe required and i would puree the tomatoes/basil not with the stock... add that second.
