Creamy Tomato Soup With Basil

I adapted this recipe from the Pioneer Woman. This tomato soup is not only easy to make; it’s also really quick and tastes a thousand times better than anything from a can. The chunks of tomato complement the cream and basil so perfectly that I don’t feel like I want a sandwich on the side for fear that I’ll mess up the wonderful taste already in my mouth.

Saute until starting to brown slightly:

4 T. butter (Melt first.)

1 onion, chopped

Add to the pot:

2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz. each)

3 c. tomato sauce

3 c. chicken broth

6 T. sugar

1 T. dried basil

1/2 t. black pepper

Heat the soup to a boil, then turn it off. Add and stir until combined:

1 1/2 c. heavy cream

Enjoy this delicious, creamy tomato soup with grilled cheese (classic) or just by itself. It’s that delicious!
