"Omg, this was delicious!!!! I followed the recipe to the letter, & it was fantastic!! I have made it 3 times in the last 3 weeks!!"
"This soup is super easy and the taste is very good. Made with grilled sandwiches."
"This soup is delicious! I sometimes substitute light cream for the whipping cream but It's delicious either way! Our church has served it at our Lenten Luncheon and everybody raves about it!"
"Everyone in my family loves this recipe! Tastes just like I've had in restaurants! I actually cut back on the heavy cream by half and used a half cup milk. It was perfect!"
"A little tangy to start with, but the flavor grew on me. Might add a little more sugar next time."
"I made this tonight. My husband likes things a little spicy so I added garlic salt, creole seasoning and salt. The.n sprinkled with Parmesan cheese in the bowl ( my husband added some hot sauce to his too) yummy on a cold night!"
"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."
"Can this be frozen after preparing? Sounds delicious!"
"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."
