another addition, is to add some VERY THIN noodles to the soup. I used to make tomato soup and add noodles and oregano. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One thing to make this "really creamy and yummy" is to add a little half & half after you return mixture to saucepan. DO NOT BOIL. Also, instead of using parsley, chop a small amount of basil and add to top. What flavor it gives. I use fresh tomatoes out of our garden when they are almost too small to use on sandwichs. Just slice an "X" in top and drop into boiling water for about 2 mins. and then slip off skins and add tomatoes to saucepan. GOod way to use up end of season tomatoes.
