Tomato based recipes for me are a continual pursuit for perfection. Every time I think I have a recipe nailed, I find a new way to add more flavour. This is the same for my Tomato and Basil Soup.
You see, as I get older, my taste buds become more refined to tastes I found to awful at times, especially when it comes to raw ingredients.
So I tend to stick to their tinned equivalent, instead of trying them again.
Not so with tomatoes, and this recipe is as useful for soup, as it is for pasta or pizza sauce.
The difference being, when simmering the mixture, leave the lid on for soup, keep the lid off for sauce! —FatLadFood
