I used a 28oz can of whole tomatoes and probably less tomatoe juice. I just filled it up to cover the tomatoes. Other than that it was the same and easier to make. Excellent flavor.

I made this last night and I must say it was pretty good! I didn't add salt and pepper because I never know how much I really want so I just added janes crazy mixed up salt and that give it a little extra flavor. Overall it was yummy I'm having it tonight with some grilled cheese sandwiches!

Superb. Easy to make and delicious. I chose to leave the skin and seeds on the tomatoes and it made the soup even better. Great recipe!

In the Winter I prefer to purchase high grade tomato puree and let the basil sweat in the soup then take out just before serving and serve julienne basil slices for topping.
