      Just wanted to add a note to the previous review - I usually freeze the leftover tomato paste in small baggies. Portion it up & freeze it, then use it when you need it.

      I gave this recipe 5 stars because it is very easy and very good. Doesn't take too long to make and I usually have all the ingredients anyway. I used one can of Rotel tomatoes with diced chiles and I used the whole 6 ounce can of tomatoe paste because I didn't want it to go to waste. Why do they make those cans 6oz. anyway? Other than that I followed it exactly and its great.

      I have made this three times and it is the best tomato bisque soup recipe! It was a winner at soup potluck. I recommend following the measurements exactly or it dilutes the flavor. I used boxed tomatoes instead of canned. I also added a half of a red bell pepper that I broiled in the over first. It gives it a little extra flavor if you like peppers. I also add 2 Tbs of Parmesan to the pot same times as the cream. Perfect with bread or a grilled cheese sandwich on a rainy day.
