Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

"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"

    For 'reserve the liquid' - do I just pour it out of the can or do I also express all the liquid from inside each whole tomato? Also - if using fresh tomatoes - do I remove skin? Thanks!

    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.

    Delicious!! We loved this thick and hearty soup. I made this in my 4-qt. crockpot, cooking it on "high" for 2 hours and "low" for 4 hours. I needed to stretch the soup to serve more people, so I used 8 oz. of evaporated milk instead of 5 oz. Also, I added a little sugar to cut the tartness/ acidity of the tomatoes. My family devoured this and wanted to know when I was going to make it again. Thank you for sharing this fabulous is definitely a keeper!! *Made for 2009 Football Pool*
