- 4 cups chicken stock or water
- OPTIONAL: add a dollop of pesto (check ingredients); toppings: basil leaves, pine nuts, parmesan cheese

- Toss together the tomatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the tomatoes in one layer on a baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes.
- In an stockpot over medium heat, sautee the onions and garlic with a pat or two of butter and red pepper flakes until the onions start to brown. Add the tomatoes (including any liquid on the baking pan) basil, thyme, and chicken stock.
- Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 30-40 minutes. Put into a colander and press through, discarding the large remaining basil leaves and tomato skins. Add more salt if necessary and check for consistency.
