I have never had homemade tomato soup. This is so much better than that canned stuff. Left out the bay leaf-didn't have any. Put in the full cup of rice. So easy to make. Very flavourful. My boys loved it!

This was "GREAT"!!! My wife and son are always leary when I try new things on them. When I served the soup they commented on the "orangeish" color:) trying to guess what was in it. BUT, they loved it!! I served it with grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. I thought the bay leave flavor was a little over powering but not bad. I already sent this to my mom. We will for sure make this again...THANKS
