I've always liked tomato soup, the kind you buy in a can, add some milk and then heat it and serve with crackers.

After finding and trying this recipe, there is no going back to canned tomato soup! Add a grilled cheese sandwich and you have a yummy meal.

If you like tomato soup, I think you're gonna love this recipe!
