Reviews for Tomato Bisque
"Delicious,easy to make and family raved about the taste."
"This was VERY good. I added 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan to the bisque and it was delicious. Next time I will know to double the recipe because I served 8 people this soup and there was barely enough to go around."
"I used tomatoes from our garden and it was delicious! I will definitely be making it again!"
"I made this delicious recipe today using tomatoes from our family garden and milk from our dairy goats. Not only was it cost effective to feed our family of six children, but all of them loved it. (Next time I will double the batch!)"
