Really lovely tasty soup and so quick and easy to make, nicer than the popular tinned version which is saying something !!!

This soup is absolutely delicious and the closest I've found to tinned soup for fussy children! I agree with another reviewer that it is better sieved. Won't seem to let me rate so 5 stars!

This soup was very quick and easy to make although I would use a teaspoon of sugar next time as we all found it far too sweet!

Lovely recipie! I made this with my ten year old and he could do it all himself. The mascarpone makes it deliciously creamy. Will definitely make this again.

This is a great, simple soup with lots of flavour. Tastes so much fresher than tinned tomato soup.

This soup is great for when you want something fresh and home-made but are short on time. It takes 10 minutes to get on the table and couldn't be easier. I do however add less sugar as I find it too sweet otherwise.

This is the first soup I have made in my life. I was very satisfied with the result. As I didn't have tabasco, i used chill flakes instead.

This is a gorgeous soup! My 8 yr old boy always ask's when I will be making it again. As the mascapone is quite high in fat has anyone found a lower fat alternative?

You can get mascarpone lighter. I got mine from tescos and it has 30% less fat but it tastes just the same. Hope this helps :)

Try a spoonful of natural greek yogurt in any soup at the end when you've taken off the heat, or add a nice spoonful on top to serve, especially nice with a spicy soup! :)

Without a doubt the best tomato soup I have tasted and unbelievably easy! Mascarpone adds a great creamy flavour. Had to double the quantities to serve 2 though.

This only took 5 minutes to make and a fantastic result! I used a 680g jar of passata instead of tinned tomatoes and so didn't even have to blitz it. Highly recommended.
