Originally from Cooking Light, I think. This is a great soup for those of you that love tomato's like I do! Perfect for the cold weather months when you want something a little different than the canned tomato soup.

This was a very pleasant soup with subtle basil flavoring. It is great for somebody like me who is trying to lose weight: it evokes a creaminess without actually having any cream in it (and I even made it with nonfat rather than low fat milk!).
