  • I tried this tonight...I have to say it was really good, but it definitely needs salt! I almost never add salt to anything, and admittedly I used unsalted tomatoes and low salt chicken broth, but I think a couple teaspoons of salt would have really kicked this up into the incredible rating! - 7/7/12
