Fire Roasted Tomato Soup

This is a delicious and lite soup for summer. It's my favorite variation of traditional tomato soup. You can wow your guests with this tasty dish without any time or effort involved. Throw some garlic bread on the grill and toss a fresh salad. My husband actually said the words, "Mmmm this soup is really good!" He usually never says a lot about food when he eats it so you have to gauge how he likes it based on how much he takes and how fast he eats it. So, for him to say something - you know it's good!

Heart healthy tip: replace cream with skim milk
