We really enjoyed this recipe. I made a couple changes, but I don't think it really affected the flavor of the soup - just made it a bit healthier really. I used petite diced tomatoes for the crushed tomatoes. At the end, I smushed it with a potato masher to get a bit smoother texture -though still pretty chunky! I used fat-free half and half in place of the cream, and because I didn't have any fresh basil, I added some Italian spice mix. It was fabulous with a panini and we will definitely make it again!
