Turkey Tomato Soup
"Turkey and tomatoes are high on my list of favorite foods," writes Carol Brunelle of Ascutney, Vermont. "My husband grows the best tomatoes ever...and I made up this recipe to complement both ingredients. It's wonderful anytime of year, but I prefer to make it when the tomatoes, green peppers, basil and garlic are all fresh from our garden."
