My 17 year old son made this for a Boy Scout merit badge. It was easy for him to prepare and very delicious! Much better than a can of soup but not as creamy which I was fine with. But next time I might add a some half and half for her taste. I will definitely be making this again!

easy, quick and tasty. I sprinkle on a little shredded cheese in each bowl when I serve. Mozzarella was the best.

I love this soup. Better than canned that is full of high fructose corn syrup. I use it when making sloppy joe, casseroles and just when I want a bowl of tomato soup with a grilled cheese,

We loved this soup. I doubled the recipe and used a combination of stewed and crushed tomatoes. Didn't puree the finished soup, but I did puree the stewed tomatoes before I added them to the pot.

Good tomato soup. I made it along side patty melts. The husband loved it. I did add a bit more salt and pepper as I thought it needed more seasoning.

Only one minor change to this one- I used dried celery flakes because I have a ton on hand. I made the soup and froze it in single servings. I defrosted it and reheated it on the stove. I liked the consistency and flavor, and you can't beat how fast it goes together.
