This is from Qu'est-ce qu'on mange Volume 3. I did this recipe so many times when I was living with my parents. It was always a success with guest. And it's so simple.

Nice, creamy and quite thick tomato soup - I pureed it a bit to incorporate the onions into the tomatios and thenI added some dried parsley and a bunch of fresh basil. I will probably add some broth to our left overs as we found it a bit on the thick side.
