Served with grilled cheese sandwiches, this soup makes a filling and flavorful meal anytime of the year.



  • 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup half and half
  • shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Croutons


Combine tomatoes and broth in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir in basil and sugar and continue heating for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; stir in half and half. Cook, stirring regularly, until soup is hot. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve garnished with Parmesan cheese and croutons.


For a less creamy soup (and fewer calories), reduce the half and half to 1/2 cup (or omit it).
