    spatchcock's Note:

    This is one of my favorite soup recipes, especially in the fall when it's just getting crisp and cool outside. However, it's also great in the summer when my basil is going nuts (like it is right now!)

      I am NEVER buying canned tomato soup again! This was so easy, and so much better. I used dried basil, and added a little garlic and cayenne pepper. Delicious!!!

      Delicious, and healthy too! I had an abundance of fresh tomatoes, so I used those. And I added a crushed garlic clove.

      My friend and I used this recipe and it came out GREAT! I love how quick and easy it is! We were actually testing the recipe before making it as our first course for Christmas Eve dinner. We did have a few changes:

      1. We used 3 garlic cloves instead of 2 - we like garlic!
      2. We used a 12-oz can of tomatoes then also added 4 fresh roma tomatoes - diced.
      3. We did blend it as the recipe calls for but not too much and left it a little chunky
      4. After blending it we added a 1/2 cup of fresh spinach
      5. We then added cheese tortellini

      It was delicious!
