I halved the recipe but use a full can of tomatoes as I had no use for the half can that would of been left. It turned out lovely!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe :)
Scaled this back 2 of us and it was also my first time using fennel and I used tin tomatoes so it was super quick to make and made a wonderfully filling lunch for the DM and I. I did use some croutons that I already had and they well so well with the soup. Thank you Sharon123, made for your cook-a-ton in memory of Jim.
