Favorite recipe for tomato soup?

A friend loves, loves tomato soup. She asked me if I could make a batch for her and she could freeze some of it. Any favorites?

I happen to love this one: http://smittenkitchen.com... . And think that good strong well-aged cheddar should factor into the production of any variety!

I love the slow-roasted tomato soup from "A New Way to Cook" by Sally Schneider. You roast them at 325 for 3 hours with a little olive oil, salt, and pinch of sugar. Then puree with chicken broth and take it any flavor direction you like. She serves with a dollop of herbed creme fraiche. I usually roast shallots too and throw them in when I puree, along with whatever is calling my name from the spice cabinet. Simple and satisfying.

I'm not usually much of a fan of tomato soup, but these suggestions have me longing for some! Thanks so much for the great ideas. ;o)

Don't forget the classic bachelor's gazpacho: In a large bowl, combine one can tomato juice with one container mild salsa. Serve.

Michael Chiarello has a really great simple soup that is perfect in the winter when you want to use canned tomatos that you roast and caramalize, I like Muri Glen. I'm not usually a big tomato soup fan either, but this with a grilled cheese or cheese croutons rocks.
