In a stockpot over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion, celery and carrots and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, or until vegetables have softened and onions are translucent. Add flour and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Add tomatoes, cream and chicken broth and bring to a light simmer for 30 minutes.
