Yummy Tomato Soup

My sister gave me this recipe and she found it on allrecipes.com. It's a homemade tomato soup and very easy to make. I made it in about 25 minutes. Yummy with grilled cheese sandwiches or crackers. Rachael Ray says that if you use San Marzano tomatoes in the can, they aren't as acidic. I found a large can at Kroger but I couldn't find it at Wal-mart. Enjoy!

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
1- 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes, drained and seeded
4 cups tomato juice
14 leaves FRESH basil
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
salt and pepper to taste
Place tomato juice in a large saucepan. Before adding tomatoes, squeeze seeds out if desired. Simmer (DO NOT BOIL) for a few minutes just until heated through. Pour into blender and puree adding the basil leaves to blend also. Return the puree to the saucepan. Place the pan over medium heat and stir in the heavy whipping cream and butter. Season with salt and pepper to desired taste. Heat, stirring until the butter is melted. Remember: DO NOT BOIL. It will make the tomatoes more acidic! Sprinkle a little cheese on top, it's yummy!
