Made this soup tonight, but didnt have celery and is still came out ok. I also added extra broth and a bag of lentils. Made this soup more of a meal. Turned out Awesome. I also paired with a "no knead" artisan bread. Made it even better.
This turned out so yummy! I substituted the half-and-half with one cup of skim milk. My husband, who's not a big fan of tomato soup, loved this! We paired it with delicious Havarti and Colby Jack grilled cheese sandwiches, and dinner was complete. Thanks for a great recipe!
I saw this on Pinterest and made it! Love it!! Next time I will cut down on the heavy cream and maybe just use milk. I used a stick blender and blended it almost smooth. Also, I used fresh basil and oregano both at the beginning and right before serving.
