tomato soupWhat an awesome day to just hang out inside where its toasty warm and watch the snow collecting outside. I was trying to come up with something yummy to cook from our panty stash, this was something quick and easy I fixed for lunch.

1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 onion, roughly chopped

4 cloves garlic, crushed

3 1/2 cups canned whole tomatoes with their juices

1/2 tsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/2 C. chopped fresh basil

Salt and pepper to taste

Parmesan and basil for garnish

Heat oil in a large stock-pot. Add onion and garlic and sauté until tender. Add in remaining ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until juice is reduced by 1/3 and soup has slightly thickened.

Blend with a stick blender until soup is smooth and no large chunks remain. Serve warm with grated parmesan and basil.
