    ksilvan's Note:

    This is almost as easy as opening a can of tomato soup. Yet this can be used to stretch your last can of soup or alone. My kids prefer no optional additions.

      I tried this anyway, despite negative reviews, and because I needed tomato soup in a hurry. I am SO GLAD I did. Is it gourmet? No. Is it garden fresh? Of course not. Is it every bit as yummy as the canned kind you grew up eating grilled cheese sandwiches with? You betcha! This was fantastic and I am going to be making it all of the time instead of that classic can that I was not fond of serving my family (check the label and nutritional info, then compare it to this. You'll switch too!) I did not add any of the suggested possible add-ins and I really, really enjoyed this. Very, very similar to the red and white can, without all the extra additives. Plus you can control the sodium!

      I actually joined to review this recipe. It is so simple, and so great! I have a can of tomato soup, but I really wanted something that was similar yet didn't have the corn syrup and a million other ingredients. So I did a web search and I found this. I halved the recipe, using 1/2 a can, plus 12 ounces water, some salt and sugar and microwaved it for 3 minutes. I was going to add powdered milk at the end, but tasted it first and it was so tasty already that I skipped the milk. I wish I had found this years ago!

      THANK YOU!!!! I've been missing Campbell's Tomato Soup dreadfully for the past 2 years since I've given up all things with high fructose corn syrup...I never thought it'd be replaced (I even called Campbell's and begged them to take it out...) Well this is it! Yay! I made it without any additions and it tastes just like the can. Now I have an adequate match for my naughty grilled cheeses (with kraft american cheese, of course).
