Used different ingredients. I didn't have any garlic salt, so I substituted 2 teaspoons of regular salt and about 2 tablespoons of garlic. I also think I used more basil than the recipe calls for. It was delicious! My roommates loved it so much that they told me I definitely need to make it again! - 29 Sep 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. My husband and I thought this was delicious. I had no garlic salt so I used a teaspoon of salt and added a clove of fresh garlic. Also only 3 lbs of chopped tomatoes. I took someone's suggestion and only drizzled a teaspoon or so of oil on the top instead of the quarter cup. Using chilled ingredients helped. Have already added this to my "frequently used" menus. - 29 Sep 2008


I had high hopes for this soup, but it did not meet my expectations. It tasted a little too acidic, and maybe even a little bitter. Not a do-over. - 29 Sep 2008
