Sheila's Soupe a L'italienne

This recipe comes from a Canadian week-end magazine, but it was a long time least 20 years! It has been a favourite in our house ever since, especially as the cooler fall weather approaches. I am submitting it almost exactly as it was printed, which is the way I make it, except that I halve the recipe, and use fresh herbs when I have them on hand. I also give the tomatoes a little 'zap' in the food processor before adding them.
