on oven roasted tomato soup...

Nothing like a hot bowl of tomato soup with a side of grilled cheese on a cold winter night. It's getting pretty cold around here and just the other day I knew from the moment I woke up that dinner was going to be some Oven Roasted Tomato Soup. 
When growing up tomato soup and grilled cheese was something I always made my dad and I after a day of being outside in the cold. Back then the good 'ol Campell's was our go to soup and don't get me wrong there's nothing like the classics but nowadays my stomach can't handle that stuff. 
This recipe is delicious and wholesome!

1 pound of roma or vine tomatoes 
2 tablespoon olive oil
salt & pepper
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
2 cups chicken broth 
fresh basil 
1 tablespoon heavy cream 

1// Slice tomatoes and coat them with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place them on a baking sheet, in the oven on 400 for about 30 minutes.
2// Meanwhile in a pot sauté onion & garlic. Once they are opaque add the chicken broth, tomatoes and basil. Boil until and then simmer for about 20 minutes.
3// Pour the soup into a blender or use a hand blender and puree.
4// Cook up some gooey grilled cheese and bam. Warm your belly good!
