Method

  1. Put the tomatoes, sugar, stock and sauces into a medium pan with some salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5-10 mins. Stir in the mascarpone and blend to a smooth soup. Return to the pan and keep warm while you make the dippers.
  2. Heat the grill to high and toast the ciabatta until golden. Rub with the garlic, season, then top with the cheese and grill until melted and golden. Slice into fingers and serve with the soup, sprinkled with the basil, if using.

Easy to make, tastes good, the dippers are great, quantities are massive though.

really disappointed by this - tasted exactly like a tin of tomato soup but cost twice as much to make...

Agree with the other comments. This soup is so easy to make but tastes amazing, really creamy.

Also agree that the portion size for 2 is not massive. I've made this three times now and don't bother with the dippers I just have some nice bread and butter.

Would highly recommend this recipe.

What a fab recipe - utterly delicious, as jodyunters says, not massive quantity, but I could have eaten the whole lot twice over!

Quality! A really rich, creamy, smooth flavour! I think the mascarpone cheese really makes this! Cooked it last week and cooking it again tonight! Does serve 2, but not massive portions, definitely need the bread dippers or something to go with it.
