    One of the best quick soups I have ever made. If necessary adjust the acid from the tomatoes with a half teaspoon or so of sugar. Has become a family favorite.

    Great recipe, easy steps, just as good if made a day ahead. If you're not a vegetarian, just add 1/4-1/2# chorizo or other smoked sausage.

    This recipe is great on a chilly evening. Pair it with some crusty bread and wine and you've got yourself a good night. I also like to make extra and pack it with a half sandwich for lunch. Hearty and healthy!
