MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2014

It worked for me. As stated, just bring the tomato to a boil in a pot and then simmer only 6-7 min. I'm a cream of tomato soup fan and this is one of the better recipes I've tried. Thanks, Heidi -- I'll be making it again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 9, 2014

I can't really honestly rate this one as is because I felt like the tomatoes needed some sort of liquid to boil in. I added about a cup of beef broth and then only used 1 1/2 cups cream at the end. This soup had a great taste like that, but who knows what it would have tasted like if I had tried to boil just the tomato quarters?
