After bringing this six-ingredient soup to a teachers' function, I had so many requests for the recipe that it was published in the school newsletter. I serve the rich soup in mugs with a Caesar salad and crusty bread.—Sarah Perkins, Southlake, Texas

"All my life I've hated Cream of Tomato soup (I'm in my 60's). Of couse my experience was Campbells made with milk. I've never tried it either because in restaurants it is so high in calories. I grow my own basil and this morning I made this. I used 1/2 c sour cream and 1/2c of heavy cream. I used crushed and diced and then used an immersion blender. Oh my goodness...call me happy. A new addition for the winter months and so quick and easy. THANK YOU! PS I also grow rosemary and thyme, I may be doing a wee bit of experimenting. ;-)"

"I halved the recipe, but I should have made the entire amount! It was delicious. I did use less basil, because I didn't have as much on hand as I thought, but still fantastic and easy!"

"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!"
