1 Tbsp. olive oil

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 can (28 oz.) Contadina® Crushed Tomatoes, drained

1 can (15 oz.) Contadina® Tomato Sauce

2 cups College Inn® 40% Less Sodium Chicken Broth

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil

1/4 cup heavy cream

Chopped fresh basil, optional

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook 3 to 5 minutes until softened, stirring frequently.

  3. Add broth if not used in Step 2, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce and basil. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in cream. Heat over low heat about 1 minute, or until hot. DO NOT BOIL. Add sugar to taste, if desired. Serve with basil and garlic croutons, if desired.
