Easy Tomato Soup

This is a really easy and fast soup recipe.  We sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on top to make it even better.  You can get 4-6 servings out of this recipe, and it's pretty easy on the wallet, too.  It would be easy to double if you're feeding a crowd.  It's great for a simple dinner with a sandwich or a salad.

Easy Tomato Soup

1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes
1/2 (14oz) can chicken broth
9 fresh basil leaves, minced OR 1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup cream or half-and-half
2 Tbsp butter

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