Debbie's notes for this recipe:
I am not too much of a tomato soup fan, but I just love this wonderful soup.It not only tastes good, it makes a beautiful presentation. Simply add some crunchy garlic bread sticks and you have a special meal in a hurry.

The buttermilk in this recipe adds a wonderfully rich flavor and texture. Bring on the grilled cheese!


Cook first five ingredient in a 3 quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly for 6-10 minutes until thoroughly heated.
Remove from heat and serve in a mug or bowl. Garnish with shredded fresh basil if desired. Serve piping hot with bread sticks, garlic bread or croutons.
