    Yummy, quick, and healthy. I don't buy canned soups, and wonder why anyone would when you can whip this up so quickly. Pureed with a hand blender and served with grilled cheese, making the kids very happy for dinner. Would prefer the Parmesan sprinkled on top, it doesn't melt well, and changes the texture a bit. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I followed this recipe to the letter and think it's just great! Perfect for a snowy day. This will be a repeat. Thanks, Impera!

    This is nice, and very quick and easy. I didn't have the seasoned tomatoes, so added the basil and oregano, as indicated (and a little more.)Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.

    Impera: I'm not going to rate this since I have not tried it yet. However, I do make a soup...especially in winter that is almost identical. The main diferences are that I use only crushed tomatoes, basil, and no olive oil. The reason I am giving my recipe differnces is because often I will use it in a styro or thermal cup as healthy "meal on the go" in the car. Since I basically use it as a beverage, I found that the crushed tomatoes just worked better in a cup. I do have plenty of diced tomatoes on hand, and your recipe looks great, so I'll give it a shot when I've finished what I already have plenty in the freeze. It's certainly cheaper than those "Soup On the Go" products that are now in the grocery stores. Regards, DEEP
