This came from a cookbook called Riverside Cup of Tea. The recipes were prepared at a lovely restaurant which has since changed owners. My daughter worked as a waitress and my son worked in the kitchen at the restaurant under a very special lady who owned the restaurant and who taught her employees much about working in a restaurant with Christian values. We enjoy serving this at dinner parties as an appetizer and it is always enjoyed by all.
- 1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
- 1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon basil
- 2 cups half-and-half
- 1⁄4 cup potato flakes
- Cut up tomatoes from can.
- Heat all ingredients slowly so half and half will not curdle.
- Lastly put in potato flakes to thicken.
Add cookd shrimp cut in bite size pieces or 1 can lumped crab meat. This makes this recipe extra special.
Loved it!!! It is very simple and so delicious, a definite keeper! I used skim milk, as that was all I had available and I added shredded cheese to top and served with warm rolls. thank you for sharing!
This is a GREAT alternative to canned soup and you would never believe how easy it is. It is delicious and tastes "home-made" . I am so glad I found this. Thanks so much for sharing, Rosemere.
