Flavorful Tomato Soup

A cookbook recipe called for ingredients I didn’t have on hand, so I improvised and came up with this. I often make it for friends at church, and I’ve shared the recipe many times. -Jean Sullivan, Denver, Colorado

    Easy and delicious. Great shortcut soup, when you don't have the time or ingredients for homemade soup from scratch. I personally will add a little less milk next time.

    This soup is so tasty and easy to make. After preparing this recipe, I would question ever making homemade tomato soup from scratch. That is alot to say considering I make at least one soup the traditional every week. This one knocks it out of the park...superb with grilled cheese sandwiches for a delicious lunch or easy light dinner!
