Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

READY IN: 9hrs 20mins
Recipe by Stephanie Z.

I got this soup from a slow cooker cookbook, but you can also make it on the stovetop. In my opinion, it's the perfect consistency, with a few chunks of tomatoes and a slightly cream sauce. Serve with fresh bread...Mmm:-D

Very nice soup. Made it for dinner last night. The cans of tomatoes that I used did not have enough juice so I used V-8 juice. I like this recipe cause I have so much basil growing this year it gives me another way of using basil. Made mde Football Pool 2009.
