Remember last week’s delicious roasted tomato sauce? Today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to turn it into tomato soup.
If you didn’t see the post, we start by roasting tomatoes, summer squash or zucchini, onions, garlic, and peppers. Add some fresh basil, allow to cool a little bit, and blend. It’s that easy, and it’s that delicious.

It’s really that easy.
