  • 1 pound tomatoes ripe
  • 1 tsp pesto basil
  • 1 tsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 slices French bread

  • Cut the tomatoes in half widthwise. Squeeze the seeds out of half of them. Grate the tomatoes on a grater, leaving behind the skin and core. (Reserve the skin for pico de gallo or salsa.)
    Place the grated tomato flesh in a small sauce pot. Add the oil and salt. Bring to a boil.
    Meanwhile toast the slices of French bread.
    Serve the soup hot with toasted slices of French bread, olive oil, and optionally, a ittle basil pesto.
