  • Add tomatoes, stock, and oregano, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer gently until thickened, about 45 minutes. Remove oregano sprigs.

  • Slowly add half-and-half, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with oregano, if desired. Serve hot.

Cook's Notes

This tomato soup is also delicious without the half-and-half -- or with twice as much.

I recommend pureeing this soup, it makes a much nicer texture.
