Low Fat Tomato Bisque

I wanted a tomato bisque that didn't have 1000 calories to a bowl.. seriously most restaurants use a huge amount of creme which at 720 calories per cup is a killer.  I first tried making this recipe with fat free milk fat but Taryn and I both agreed it was too acidic.  It also lacked that savory taste I want from a tomato bisque.  So, I modified it to have a reasonable amount of milk fat without going over the top.

3 cup Pureed Strained Tomatoes in a Box (not can, it tastes funny.. its worth buying the fancy kind)
1 cup low fat milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup heavy creme... add then taste and see what you need
1 table spoon Mixed Dried Italian Herbs
1/2 tea spoon dill weed

A little cheddar cheese to go on top
Gold Fish Crackers to go on top

Combine spices and tomato puree and  bring to a boil.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the milk and creme and bring back to a very low simmer.
Salt and pepper to taste.
