Take a can of chopped plum tomatoes and a box of passata.
That is sieved tomato.
Empty them into a pan and let simmer for around 20 minutes
Take a stick blender and whizz the soup smooth.
You then need cream, butter, basil and black pepper. How much you use depends on taste.
I add about 2 Tablespoons of butter and 2 of cream.
Season with black pepper and dried basil.
Stir it through, reheat and then serve into dishes.
I like to add a dollop of cream on top as well.
Serve with some lovely crusty bread
