Recipe by Stacky5

This recipe came from my friend, Michelle, who I used to work with...This was her Mom's recipe -- who was the chef in a small bistro here in Southern Indiana...Michelle's Mom passed away a couple of years ago and I'm so proud to have this recipe to pass on...

Yummy stuff!! I tweaked it a tad by using fresh tomatoes, skim milk, and Low-fat Heavy Cream Substitute (Recipe #113203). We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful take on tomato soup! Thank you for the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients, adding each one slowly, stirring constantly to smooth out the lumps as you go -- (NOTE: I believe Michelle told me to use a hand mixer to smooth out any lumps BEFORE you add the basil, salt & pepper.).
  2. Bring to a simmer (just bubbly around the edges) - DO NOT BOIL.
  3. Simmer slowly for at least 40 minutes, then serve with buttered, crusty bread. YUM!
