Homemade Tomato Soup

I serve these with Italian Cheese & Pesto Sandwiches - which are also listed on this site.

Preheat oven to 450
Toss together and roast in shallow pan for 40 minutes:
8-10 Fresh tomatos on the vine (garaden fresh or Hot house), quartered
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 c. olive oil
salt and black pepper

Saute in 2 T olive oil about 5-7 minutes
1 large chopped white onion
then stir in:
2 c. water
2 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. red pepper flakes
roasted tomato mixture
Bring all to a boil then reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Puree soup in blender until smooth, or chunky as you like.

Garnish with:
1/2 c. cream, milk, or half&half
fresh basil

Okay, so did you add the cream when you made it for us? Did you use cream, milk, or half and half?
