    Thank you so much for this recipe!! I used regular granulated sugar, homemade canned tomatoes, and my own chicken broth (none of which altered the total calories) and it was fantastic! I have been searching for the perfect tomato bisque & here it is. No more unfulfilled pregnancy cravings!! - 1/18/09

  • This was my first try at a tomato soup. This soup was good and easy to make.
    I omitted the splenda after readying some of the reviews.
    I think I will use this soup as a base for other sauces.
    I will make again - 5/2/13

  • not much flavor. I had to doctor it up with some onion powder, basil, nutmeg garlic salt.
    won't make again - 6/6/12

  • This was good. But I tend to like tomatoes with Italian spices and found that this made a tomato soup that was on the sweet side - though I did discover that I left out the sugar - that could have been part of it.

    I added: oregano, garlic, and anise seed. Yum! - 2/8/11

  • This was very good. I easily halved the recipe and used 1% milk instead of fat free half and half. VERY thick and filling! - 12/2/10
