Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons sugar
2 cans (28 ounces each) diced fire roasted tomatoes
1/4 cup dried basil
Salt and pepper
1 cup shredded Parmesan or mozzarella cheese
Extra grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
3 to 4 fresh chopped basil leaves

Directions:
In a large soup pan mix together tomatoes with juice, heavy cream, sugar, basil, and a little salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and stir occasionally. Simmer for a minute or two. Turn down heat. Blend the soup with an immersion blender until it’s pretty smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, let the mixture cool a bit. Then, put it in your blender and puree in batches. Return soup to the pot. Bring the soup back to a simmer. Turn off heat and whisk in the cheese. Taste to see if a little more salt and pepper is needed. Serve in bowls with extra cheese and chopped fresh basil on top.

Notes:
This soup makes everything better! Serve with garlic bread or, better yet, a grilled cheese sandwich for dunking and let me tell you, life is good! If you can’t find fire roasted tomatoes, regular canned tomatoes will work fine.
