After bringing this six-ingredient soup to a teachers' function, I had so many requests for the recipe that it was published in the school newsletter. I serve the rich soup in mugs with a Caesar salad and crusty bread.—Sarah Perkins, Southlake, Texas

I have been making this delicious soup for 4 or 5 years now and my family and I love it! It is my favorite tomato soup and definitely a winner!

This soup is our family's absolute favorite! We use skim milk instead of the whipping cream. It works wonderfully.

MY REVIEW

Never provided a review before, but this is so simple and delicious I felt I should. Only sub was fat free half/half for cream and used 1/2 stick of lite butter. Served with homemade reduced fat texas toast.

Can this be frozen after preparing? Sounds delicious!

MY REVIEW

This is a fantastic tomato soup as is! We use 1 can crushed tomatoes and 1 can diced tomatoes. After a bit of experimentation, we add a bit of baking soda (less than 1/8 tsp) to cut the acidity and cut the butter in half. Canned milk is a good alternative to whipping cream, too.
