Tomato Basil Soup Plus Dumplings

Tomato Basil Soup Plus Dumplings at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

We love tomato soup and this recipe has a bonus of dumplings. The flavors in this soup and dumplings will have you talking about this soup until you can get seconds. A nice blend of vegetables and add some fresh basil from the herb garden then it is a hit here at the cottage. I made this special recipe for a ladies committee luncheon meeting and the ladies gave us rave reviews. My husband always ask for double dumplings, they are so delicious, I can sure understand why!
