Recipe Comments & Reviews

I recently made this for a large group and needed to food allergy friendly, so I substituted vegetable bouillon for the milk. It was great and I received many compliments and requests for the recipe! Also, to make a little more kid-friendly I processed the onions and tomatoes in the blender.
Couldn' t be any easier but we found it to have little depth ... kind of a one-note bowl.
This was great! After sautéing the onions, I put them and half of the tomato juice into a blender and blended until smooth. Then I put them back in the pot and followed the recipe, but with a liberal addition of garlic powder. No leftovers, and everybody liked it.
For a more filling soup I add frozen precooked italian meatballs heat thru, this soup is my back up soup when we are running late.
