Gourmet Cooking: Lesson 5, Tomato Soup

14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
11 oz can condensed tomato soup
Soup can of water, or milk for creamy soup
1-3 cloves garlic, minced
Small bit of dried basil
Small bit of dried oregano
Pepper to taste

1. Mix all ingredients in saucepan or bowl big enough to hold it all with some room leftover. Simmer on low for 10 minutes to combine flavors. (Or microwave until it starts to boil.)

2. Delicious served with grated cheese and cornbread.

I make this with water instead of milk. If you want to get fancy, sautee the garlic first for a minute or two before adding the rest of the ingredients. If you’re using chopped fresh herbs, add them first with the garlic.

    This sounds good – and I don’t normally like tomato soup. looks easy too, which is even better.
