For some reason my nostalgic memories of the tomato soup brand I ate when I was growing up do not match the actual taste of it when I eat it now.  How can this be? I think it’s akin to when I finally went back as an adult to see the house where I lived as a child. It had seemed so spacious to me then:  full of nooks and play places, room to crash around, build forts, dress up, and generally be mildly mischievous.  But oh how tiny it was when I finally saw it again!  Maybe this has happened to you.  Anyway, {X}-brand tomato soup just doesn’t do it for me anymore.  I need something luscious and creamy, a little spicy, and yep–quick to make.

So when I happened on this recipe from Taste of Home, I knew it was a candidate for adaptation.  The real beauty of the new recipe is that it is perfectly portioned for one serving.  Zero leftovers– just me and my awesome soup.  Do not doubt.  Just try it out.  What else are you doing with the next nine minutes, anyway?

This recipe is based on an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce.  These are the tiny ones, but make sure you have tomato sauce, and not tomato paste or something else.

Tomato Sauce

In a small (the smallest you’ve got) saucepan, combine the tomato sauce, chicken broth, brown sugar, Italian seasoning, white pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt.  Bring just to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce the heat, cover the soup, and simmer five minutes.  Turn off the heat (you run the chance of curdling the cream if you add it while the soup is still boiling), and stir in the heavy cream.  Serve topped with grated cheese, crackers, croutons, a grilled cheese sandwich, or whatever you like.  If you like tomato soup and you make this version once, you will make it again and again.
