Mom loves Cream of Tomato soup and she grew up on Campbell's Cream of Tomato but she doesn't buy canned soup anymore so she decided to find a recipe and make her own from scratch.
She found quite a few recipes and sorta created her own from all of the ones that she read.
She sauteed a shallot and a garlic clove together until soft and transparent and then she added a 15-oz box of chicken stock and salt and pepper and a tiny bit of sugar and Mrs Dash's Italian seasoning (which she could never live without) and let the broth simmer till it was good and hot and then she added a 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes and she let that cook for a bit.
And then she added 1-cup of heavy cream. One of the recipes that she read suggested stirring in a teaspoon of the pesto and she thought that was a great idea!
It's the perfect color that reminds mom of all of the cold and crisp days that her mom made this for lunch for my mom and her brothers when they came inside from playing outside all morning.
It's perfect, mom!
We'll be making Cream of Tomato soup more than once this season!
Love ya lots♥
