The soup is a simple tomato flavor-- not really meant for a stand-alone dish, more of a side. It's quick, easy, and doesn't create a ton of dirty dishes. The best part, though, is that it tastes great! I chose to keep it a bit chunky.

This was, without a doubt, the BEST tomato soup I have ever had! My husband, who hates tomatoes, loved it! After simmering the tomatoe mixture, I pureed it in the blender, then added the microwaved heavy cream. I served it with grilled cheese... delicious!

In and of itself the recipe is good, however I was really hoping for a much richer consistency (like a certain restaraunt's tomato basil soup).
