DIRECTIONS

  • Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic, onion, basil, salt, pepper, heavy cream and vegetable or chicken broth to your crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours (although it can be done on high for 2 hours as well). Stir occasionally and scrape down the sides (if you can).
  • minutes before serving, transfer soup to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Return to crockpot.
  • Make your roux by melting your butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add the flour and whisk until it's incorporated. Slowly whisk in the heavy cream until the cream is smooth and thickened.
  • Add Parmesan cheese and roux to the crockpot and stir to combine.
  • Cook for another 20-30 minutes. Cheese should be completely melted into the soup. Stir thoroughly before serving. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and basil if desired.
