Garden fresh is the perfect name - you won't want to eat canned tomato soup ever again! I used freshly-picked tomatoes from the local Homestead farms, and did step #1 in advance and chilled overnight; the thick, intensely-flavored soup was ready very quickly the next day. This definitely could serve four. I used the leftovers as pasta sauce which worked great.
