This is truly a delicious soup! I have made it with fresh tomatoes from the garden and this too is exceptional. Wonderful soup for those cold fall and winter days. A keeper!!

Instead of four cups of water, I dropped the tomato soup, added 1small can of tomato paste 21/2 cups tomato juice 2 cups water with buillion. THIS IS A GREAT SOUP!! As with most crockpot dishes EASY and GREAT.

Christina, you have made my family very happy! This is a good, homey soup! I didn't change much except for using lots of paprika. I added some cooked elbow noodles to the bowl before I ladled in the soup. Even my picky eater had seconds!
