Cozy Creamy Tomatoey Soup

Sitting by the fire, bitter coldness looming outside, a good family movie on the TV, and this soup make an ordinary night extraordinary.
Cozy Creamy Tomatoey Soup
  • 2 (28 oz) cans crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
  • 18 fresh basil leaves minced OR 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 C whipping cream (I used fat free half and half instead which worked great)
  • 1/2 C butter or marg (I used 6 Tbsp instead which worked great)

In a large saucepan, bring tomatoes and broth to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 10 min. Add basil and sugar. Reduce heat to low; stir in cream and butter. Cook until butter is melted. Enjoy!
