I attempted to make spicy tomato sauce out of fresh tomatoes and this soup is the result. We think it is a winner. If you simmer this for an additional 45 minutes, not covered, you will get a thick spicy sauce. This soup tastes great frozen and reheated.

  • Remove from the heat and puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth, or blend in batches in a blender. Return to the heat, stir in Parmesan cheese, and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes more. Serve immediately.
