I made a batch of this soup to serve when company came for a light supper. It was very popular. I could not find fresh basil at my grocery, so I used jarred basil, and I subbed half-and-half for the heavy cream, but it turned out great. I used homemade tomato juice (recipe # 204120) for the vegetable juice. It is a good recipe for tomato basil soup, and I will be making it again! Thanks for sharing it.
