Sounds a bit like all veggie soup to me. Which is really tastey with the correct herbs and spices.........I always add some cabbage,greenbeans,carrots,cauliflower,brocco li. allspice,oregano,garlic,onions. and some boullian cubes for flavoring.

mmmmmmmm got me hungry now
I say......try it, what do you have to lose?  The seasonings should make it good.

Seems like I saw a recipe someplace that was 1/2 tomato sauce and 1/2 chicken broth.
I was thinking of adding 2cups water to the tomato sauce, extra herbs & spices i have lying around that i never use =P, a chicken with tomato bouillon cube, carrots, onion, garlic & or zuchinni

heat it all up in a pan and there we go, quick and easy yummyness.
It will work, though I would recommend using broth instead of water.  You'll get more flavor that way.  I make mine by sauteing an onion, adding the tomatoes and broth, then seasoning with thyme and black pepper.  It's about 50 calories or so per cup (if that).  Makes a gooey grilled cheese a do-able lunch.
YESSSS I ALWAYS have to have a grilled cheese sandwhich with my tomato soupy. hehe.
i found this recipe - uses tomato paste instead of tomato sauce

1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 can water
2 TBS margarine
3 cans milk
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
dash black pepper.

mix tomato paste, water and margarine in pan.  Heat until smooth and bubbly.  Remove from heat.  Stir in remaining ingredient.  Heat over low heat until very hot, but not boiling.  If you boil it, the milk will curdle. If you can't help boiling, call this Speckled Tomato Soup and pretend it is supposed to look that way. 

I tried this recipe and it was pretty good.  Not Campbell's, but okay.
i dont want to use milk =P

It would be pretty sour I think.

You might have to add some sugar (I know, sounds weird) or something sweet (ie. lots of carrots, or milk as mentioned)

Don't use tomato sauce! Just finely chop an onion and fry it, add in a bit of garlic and some chilli paste, pour in a can or 2 of tomato puree/paste with a bit of water, a couple of chicken stock cubes and simmer it down until it thickens


it still tastes good with tomato sauce! :)
