I was told about a group of guests coming over for dinner, 2 hours before! Since it was really cold, I thought I'd serve soup. I looked in the freezer and I didnt have enough supply for the people coming. So, I made this soup- easy as 1-2-3.

Tomato Soup
3 cans tomato juice
1 can water (used the empty can of juice)
1/4 cup sugar
salt,  Pepper to taste
1/2 cup rice
(optional: basil)

Throw all ingredients in a pot (can double...)
Bring to a boil
Cover and simmer for 1/2 hour.
