Addictive Tomato Soup

"My new favorite addictive taste"

That was Dad's response to this easy soup I put together tonight

There's no exact recipe

Here's what I did:

Sauteed in olive oil: half a large onion, a small pepper and three cloves of garlic - all chopped.

While cooking, added hot pepper flakes (generous pinch), dried basil (about 1/2 tsp) and dried oregano (about 1/4 tsp).

Poured in 2 cans chopped tomatoes and 1 can chicken broth

Added pepper to taste plus a couple teaspoons sugar (I used brown)

Simmered 15-20 minutes

Took off heat and stirred in 1/2 cup cream

Simmered 15 to 20 minutes

Ate with crusty fermented european bread (I'll post that recipe someday)
