    The soup recipe itself was not quite to our taste.....a bit bland and bitter. However, I "doctored" it with some of our fav seasonings, basil, pinch of cloves, bay leaf, no fat 1/2 and 1/2, and a bit of sugar to mellow the tomatoes. The result was great. Made biscuits with Heart Healthy Biscquick. Served with shredded cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and chives for a pretty presentation. Appetizing to look at and delicious!! Will make again...result fantastic with the few modifications!!
