Jennys Easy Tomato Soup
1-15 oz can diced tomatoes
1-15oz can tomato sauce (generic is generally lower in sodium)
1 fresh tomato, diced
1-2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (optional)
2-3 minced garlic cloves
Italian seasoning, parsley, salt, pepper to taste
Throw everything in a pot except water. Once all is warmed through, add water until the flavor is mild enough for your taste. Allow to cook for about 30 minutes.
Add soup to blender and blend until smooth.
Serve with a toasted tortilla or saltines. Goes GREAT with a salad - the veggies cool off the Tabasco bite.
Enjoy! (Also good as a start to a meal as it fills you up with virtually no calories so that you eat less of the meal.)
