Mix all ingredients (except the cream) in a saucepan and simmer for 30 minutes. Heat cream cream separately and add to soup when you are ready to serve it! So simple!
Note: I did puree my tomatoes to make this a smoother soup. Also, the original recipe called for 2 cups cream and I found that one was plenty. Feel free to add more or less!
Don't forget the grilled cheese sandwiches! I made a cheese quesadilla for me! So yummy!
