6-7 tomatoes, seeded & chopped
¼ onion, chopped
1 c. leftover tomato-based sauce (spaghetti, soup, etc)
1 can chicken/veggie broth (about 1.75 c.)
2-3 Tbs flour
2-3 Tbs butter/olive oil
1-2 c. milk/cream
12-16 basil leaves, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Simmer first 4 ingredients listed together in a covered pot, up to 30 min. Mix flour and butter/oil in saucepan on med heat, then add milk. Combine all in pot. Immersion blend with basil. Season and serve with grilled cheese sandwiches and chocolate milkshakes.
In a pinch I’ll compensate with more sauce if not enough tomatoes are on hand. As long as it’s heavy with tomatoes of some kind, I think you’ll be fine.
