Very easy soup to make and very tasty. My husband loved it, there were no leftovers. I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of half & half to make it creamy and it was delicious. For the creamy version the only thing I would change for next time is to put the basil & oregano in a bouquet garnis so the soup doesn't have the seasoning specks on it.

This was a quick, easy soup to make. I followed the recipe and loved it. I will make this again. Thanks Miss Diggy

Great soup!! I have also made this recipe a couple of times now, although I used fresh tomatoes (blanched to remove the skins) and omitted the sugar. I like to leave the skins on the potatoes, though, and only used 1 onion. Note to ~Shellbelle73~: A tomato is NOT a vegetable, but actually a member of the citrus family... Meow!!
