  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 14 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic salt (with parsley flakes)
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 cup half and half


  • In a medium saucepan, saute garlic in butter for 1 minute. Then, stir in the flour until blended.
  • Pour in the chicken broth, gradually. Stir in the tomatoes, paprika, garlic salt, and basil until well blended.
  • Bring the pot to a boil and cook for about 2 minutes - or until thickened.
