Asiago Tomato Basil Soup

This soup was simply divine!  It was quick and easy to prepare and tasted amazing with the mozzarella grilled cheese sandwiches I made.

Asiago Tomato Basil Soup
1-28oz. Can Hunts Crushed Tomatoes (I used tomato sauce... I figured I was going to puree it anyway I might as well just skip that step ;) )
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp. Fresh Basil, chopped
1 c. Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
1 c. Heavy Cream
1/2 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1/4 c. Shredded Asiago Cheese 

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil and add the basil and saute for 1 minute.
Add the crushed tomatoes, broth, heavy cream, salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil then let simmer for 10 minutes.
Use an immersion blender to blend all of the ingredients together until it’s smooth and creamy.
Add the cheese and stir until melted, about 5 minutes.
Makes 6 cups.
