This is a recipe I made up one day when I was craving some soup. It's semi-homemade, easy and quick to make.

A very nice way to dress up the ol' can of tomato soup! I especially liked the inclusion of garlic, one of my favorite ingredients! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
