This is the best tomato soup I have ever eaten. I've made it 4 times for several different people and none of us can ever get enough. If you are looking for the perfect tomato soup look no further. I won't ever use another tomato soup recipe AND it puts together pretty quickly. I only wish I could give it 10 stars. The best recipe I have gotten from this site.
