1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen® organic crushed tomatoes with basil

Roasted sweet peppers are a delicious addition to this tomato soup. While the soup is simmering, heat some Italian rolls to serve with it.

Preparation & Directions

  1. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Set oven control to broil. Cut peppers into quarters, removing membranes and seeds. Place skin sides up in pan; press down to flatten.

  2. Broil peppers 4 to 6 inches from heat about 10 minutes or until blackened. Wrap foil around peppers; let stand 20 minutes. Remove skin from peppers; discard. Cut peppers into 1/2-inch pieces. Set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, in 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic in oil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until crisp-tender.

  4. Stir in tomatoes, broth, sugar, crushed red pepper and salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes. Stir in roasted peppers; heat until hot.

Short on time? Use 1 1/2 cups jarred roasted sweet peppers rather than roasting your own.
