roasted tomato soup

This recipe has been my favorite way to use up the extra tomatoes from my CSA.

3 pounds tomatoes – roasted *, peeled, and chopped

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat.  Add onions and garlic, cook, stirring until onions are translucent.  Add wine, tomatoes, salt and pepper.  Cook until tomatoes fall apart.  Stir in basil if desired.

Allow to cool slightly.  Use an immersion blender to puree mixture.  Add cream and season with salt and pepper to taste.
