Basil Tomato Soup

BASIL TOMATO SOUP

PREP/TIME 20 MINUTES SERVINGS: 9 (1 CUP)

2 Cans (28 oz each) crushed tomatoes (low sodium)
1 Can (14.5 oz) chicken broth (low fat/low sodium)
18-20 fresh basil leaves, minced
(Can use dried basil, probably 2 large tablespoons or more)
1 tsp sugar
1 Can evaporated milk (fat free)
1/2 C butter (salt free)

In large sauce pan, bring tomatoes and broth to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add basil and sugar. Reduce heat to low; stir in evaporated milk and butter. Cook until butter is melted.

(I also add 1-2 bay leaves for flavor)

Okay I am laughing when I got on to post this...seeing you had just posted a tomato soup recipe. I just received this one and it came with some great recommendations, So I am posting it so I won't lose the recipe, but now I might have to try both soups and see which one I prefer.
