I make this soup when I am in the mood for a more hearty tomato soup. Even though the base for this is a can of soup, other wonderful ingredients are being added and the soup takes hardly any time at all. That's how a soup recipe can be great even if you use a can of soup to make it!

I made this soup for a seven-course meal I was serving. It was a hit! You can saute the veggies and spices, then freeze for later, so the soup can be made in a snap.

Made a typing mistake in my review. Meant to say that I added 1 1/2 cans of chopped tomatoes with juice.

I added yellow pepper instead of the carrot. Used 1 10 oz. can of tomato soup and added 1/12 soup cans of chopped tomatoes with juice. Otherwise I made the recipe as directed. Will definately make it again. Next time I will double the recipe.
