I will definitely make this again. I love tomato soup and I love this recipe as a great way to have it without all the sodium that usuallly accompanies it! I used 14.5 can of broth instead of 2c, and used the whole 6oz can of paste. I also went much heavier on the basil & oregano for added flavor. - 5/21/08
