This is a very fresh tasting soup. I used San Marzano tomatoes and whipping cream. I offered homemade croutons for the kids who wanted a crunchy topping. Be sure to taste test before serving. I added approximately 2 t of salt and a generous amount of fresh ground pepper. The overall rating from the four of us was 3.5 - 5, but since I cannot give it a half star, we gave it a 4. I successfully halved this recipe and served with grilled cheese sammiches. This does make several generous bowls of soup. I would say half the recipe made 10 cups. Thanks for posting Zelz. I will be making this again! WOW, thisis even better then next day for lunch. That's it, I'm bumping it up to a 5* rating! YUM!

Fabulous! I had to substitute crushed tomatoes with basil for the plum tomatoes because that is all I had. I tasted the soup prior to adding the cream and it was deliciuous, too. Next time I will only puree half of the soup so that I have some chunks (personal preference).This was very easy and I can't think of any way to improve on the flavor. I can't comment on "next day leftovers" because there weren't any!

I only used 1 (14.5 oz) can of chicken stock or half the amount specified by the recipe. The soup was a little runny. Tastes great tho. Thank you.

This soup is definitely better the second day! I would've given it 3 stars the first day (it tasted watery to me), but waited to review until I tasted the leftovers based on Chicagoland Chef's review. It is definitely 5 stars now--and I am so glad, because I love the Nordstrom soup! Thank you!
