This soup is so easy and delicious! I make this soup every year with fresh tomatoes from my garden. I add more basil than the recipe calls for and it turns out wonderful every time. I've used both Half & Half and milk in the recipe and both turn out good. Personally I wouldn't substitute with dried basil because I believe the fresh basil is a key ingredient to making this soup so delicious.

Recipe is simple, quick and TASTY!! I substituted canned, diced petite cut tomatoes and used dried basil along with minced garlic from the fridge and I must say it was still OUTSTANDING!!! Only reccomendations would be: 1: Use a light whipping cream instead of the half & half if you're looking for a creamier texture. 2: Add some tomato puree for a 'red' color, it doesn't take away from the flavor at all.
