Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Pamela Johnson


With Fall just around the corner this is just the best. My husband loves it so much he asked that I always have some on hand in the refrigerator for a quick snack or meal. So simple...add all ingredients in a large sauce pan and simmer on low for 30 min. Garnish with fresh Basil. It is like a gourmet soup you would get at an expensive restaurant....Enjoy!!!
