I simply love tomato soup. I also love cheese, so I tried them together. And this is the result.

It's rich - but we all could stand something to make our hair stand on end. I prefer sweet (vidalia or maya) onions to red ones and since I so seldom have heavy cream on hand I substituted sour cream and used real sugar - what the heck - one teaspoon of sugar is a small indulgence considering all of the cholesterol right? BUT I can say that only because I divorced my diabetic second husband LOL. All things in moderation and live life! Read More

This was very good but missing something. I think I will crumble some fried bacon into the leftovers. Read More

Made a good creamy soup. I added another can of tomatoes as did another reviewer. My only question is this: Blue cheese cream cheese milk heavy craem then Splenda? What's the point? It' like having a triple bacon cheese burger giant fries and ordering a Diet Coke. Not much sense Read More

Delicious! However don't expect the soup to look like your typical red tomato soup; it's quite pink from all the cream/milk/cream cheese. Read More

I used 6 oz feta instead of 1/4 cup blue cheese and 1/2 cup vitamin D milk instead of the mixture of heavy cream and milk. The soup was easy and quick to make but a little flavorless. It needed a lot of salt added to it which I don't really like to do. Read More
