    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in heavy saucepan. Add shallots and garlic and sauté over med-low heat 2-3 minutes -- be careful not to burn garlic.
    2. 2
      Stir in broth, water, tomatoes and basil (if using fresh basil you will add it later). Add salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Heat cream till just warm (either on stove top in a separate sauce pan or in microwave) then stir into tomato mixture. Bring just to a boil; immediately reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. If using fresh basil, stir in at this point.
    4. 4
      Do not allow soup to boil.
    5. 5
      Serve immediately.
    6. 6
      **Note** We like a smoother soup so I usually send the canned tomatoes through the blender or food processor before adding them to the mixture.

      While good, we found this to be on the bland side - more garlic! To bring up the taste, I added celery seed and tomato paste plus 3 basil balls. This was good, but not spectacular. Good with toasted cheese on a roll.

      This recipe was very quick and easy to make. Although it tasted great as is and on special occasions I would make it this way - for a weekly soup I might lighten the recipe up with a light cream or 2% instead of the heavy cream and then to make the soup a little thicker reduce the can of water by half and reduce the 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup of milk. But your right "PattySparx" the more garlic the better. I minced in 3 cloves and then served the soup with a garlic butter bagette. Thanks for sharing.
