Creamy Tomato Soup with Basil

Creamy Tomato Soup with BasilWhen you are at a resturant or party and they have different kinds of soup for you to choose from, which one do you usually go for? I usually pick something with a little meat and noodles with veggies added. Have you ever gone for the simple tomato soup? All tomato soup is from a can with a red and white label on it, right?

Wrong. My sister-in-law brought this soup over to a family get together one year and as I was about to pass it up for something with more character, I got a small whiff of hers and it smelled divine. Alright, I thought. I can compromise. I’ll have a small bowl of the tomato soup and then have another bowl of something else. Turns out I had 3 bowls of the tomato soup and none of the others. When something is that good you know you need the recipe!

Creamy Tomato Soup with Basil is so creamy and delicious and makes a perfect dinner to warm you and your family on a cold winter night!

Tips for Creamy Tomato Soup with Basil

  • Substitute the Ditalini Pasta for another type of pasta or egg noodles.
  • Can use 6-8 large tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes.
