    Literary Mom's Note:

    Not only stretches a can of soup into several servings, but also makes it taste homemade. If you prefer a less tangy flavor, omit the juices from the canned tomatoes or add more half and half (or milk or cream).

      This is a great base recipe for a bisque! My family likes our soup a little bit on the kickier side, so I added the following:<br/>-A pinch of crushed cloves<br/>-1 bay leaf<br/>-A few shakes of dried basil<br/>-A shake of onion powder<br/>-A shake of garlic powder<br/>-A few shakes of dried red pepper flakes<br/>-Salt to taste<br/><br/>I've been looking for a good basic bisque recipe for ages ? this is it! :)

      What a great shortcut to making tomato bisque! I used half the cream (10%) and used stewed tomatos with celery. I also added cheese tortellini (tip from another recipe). Delish!

      Who would have ever thought that by adding canned diced tomatoes to condensed tomato soup, it would taste homemade! I served this with corn bread and had a wonderful lunch. Can't wait to make this again for our potluck group....they'll never believe how tasty and EASY it is. Good going, Picholine.
