Here's a delicious way to use up an abundance of fresh garden tomatoes. The thyme makes it taste extra fresh.—Marie T Forte, Raritan, New Jersey

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 pounds tomatoes (about 4 medium), halved
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • Salad croutons and additional fresh basil leaves, optional

Directions

  1. Place the tomatoes, onion and garlic in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until tender, stirring once. Cool slightly.
  2. In a blender, process tomato mixture and basil leaves until blended. Transfer to a large saucepan and heat through. Garnish each serving with croutons and additional basil if desired.

    Wonderful, used fresh homegrown tomatoes and basil from the garden. I put the basil in the blender, too. What a taste treat!
