Soup- Creamy Tomato Basil

Prep time: 10 minutesCooking time: 20 minutesTotal time: 30 minutes


Cook's Note: Serves 6 to 8 people. I chopped my basil in a one cup blender. I also added a little salt and pepper. Serve with sprinkles of fresh parmesan cheese or fresh basil leaf on top. This is my favorite tomato soup!

1. Add ½ butter and onions and together in a large saucepan. Cook until onions look almost done. Stir in tomatoes and chicken broth; bring to a boil and cook at a simmer about 10 minutes. 2. Stir basil and sugar into the tomato mixture; reduce heat to low and continue cooking until the basil is wilted, about 5 minutes. 3. Add butter and continue cooking until butter is melted. Stir cream into the tomato mixture, stirring 5 to 7 minutes more. (Do not let boil.) Add wine, stirring and cut heat.
