Not sure why the need to take a basic good thing and complicate it... I don't think the milk does much here, and I buy the seasoned Tomatoes so in a pinch I don't have to add fresh chopped basil and green onions, which I don't always have on hand... so not bad, just over done for a quick comfort food meal.
