Made this as written, though I did leave out the carrots. The rest of the ingredients made for a very nice soup, especially the roma tomatoes. Perfect soup for a cool winters day here in the midwest. We enjoyed this and was a right amount for the 4 of us. Made for The best of 2012 Tag game.
Fabulous tomato soup! It's going into my best of the best file. I love the flavor due to the roasting of veggies and really like the addition of carrots. I ended up using regular on-the-vine tomatoes since they were on sale. The directions are perfect. I only added 1 T of the sugar. Delicious soup. Thanks for posting!
