I am only giving it four stars because I have a few suggestions that I think would make it a five star recipe. First I added a peeled and cubed potato and 1/4 cup cream. Then I blended it with the smoothie blender. It comes out very creamy with a nice thickness to it because of the pureed potato. I also might use vegetable broth instead of chicken next time.


This is some of the best soup I've ever had in my life. I LOVE soup so I don't say this lightly!! Easy to prepare and ready fast. The only change I made was adding a little bit extra garlic and fresh basil (use 2xs as much). SO SO SO GOOD I am fighting myself to not eat it all!***Edit*** I also like to top this with croutons and fresh parmesan cheese. It's also very good if you put it in a blender (I use a hand blender) and puree it with a bit of cream. Just be sure to remove the bay leaf! One last thing, I always make this with (gasp) canned tomatoes!


Made this for dinner picture tonight. Big hit with the famiy, however I adapted to my tastes and ingredients on hand. I used fresh tomato and herbs (basil, oregano & parsley). I peeled and seeded the tomatoes. I added a bit of feta and blended it smooth with the immersion blender. Also used more wine and subbed tomato juice for some of the broth. Also used honey instead of sugar. (processed sugar bad).
