Tomato Cream Soup

As I mentioned last week, my family has been hit hard with sickness.  My kids had it, my husband had it, and after 2 weeks, I still have it!  I have had enough of this little bug and can't wait to kick it!  On the day that my husband was at his worst, I knew that the only thing that he would be able to handle for dinner, would be a nice hot bowl of soup.  But since I was still not feeling fabulous, I wanted something easy and fast.  This recipe fit the bill for all of those things.  I whipped it up in a matter of minutes and served along side a hot grilled cheese sandwich, it was the perfect meal for all of us sickies around here!  My husband especially liked this soup.  You can never have too many soups in your file and one that is as easy and painless as this, is even better!  

Tomato Cream Soup

2 cups milk
1 can (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened (I used light with stellar results)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Place all ingredients in a blender.  Cover and process until smooth.  Transfer to a large saucepan and heat through.  Serve warm.

  6. This looks like a nice and easy recipe for a cold or rainy night. I have a recipe similar to this that I love. It has sauteed onions and does not blend up the diced tomatoes and cream cheese. You dice the cream cheese and add it at the end and stir gently. I also add oregano and rosemary for some extra flavor. That make a nice twist to your already great recipe:)
    Thanks for sharing!

  12. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover somebody who genuinely understands
    what they are discussing on the net. You certainly
    realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should look at this and understand this side
    of your story. It's surprising you aren't more popular given that you surely have the gift.
