Smoky Roasted Tomato and Pasta Soup

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by echo echo

I really got into roasted vegetables last winter so was thrilled when I discoverd this soup. What's especially nice is that roasting enhances the taste even of vegetables that aren't normally that flavorful, such as the tomatoes you get at the supermarket in the winter. If you don't have vegetable stock on hand, use water. If you like, garnish the soup by floating a couple fresh basil leaves in each bowl.

I have been looking for a good tomato and pasta recipe for a long time, and this one met with outstanding approval by all at the dinner table. I used 3 cloves of garlic, rather than minced, and increased the pasta to 1 cup. This is a keeper!
