Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Spent some time in a coffee shop where they offered Tomato Basil Soup. I didn't want to spend 5 bucks for a cup but it did inspire me to make my own! I looked for a recipe online and found a good one from Ina Garten. 140+ positive comments- so I went for it. The only thing I couldn't do was puree. I wish I had an immersion blender or a Cuisinart that actually holds liquids (it seeps!) so I used a masher instead to break it up. It turned into a hearty meal. I also added a little cream at the end and reduced the amt. of salt, Ina is a sodium freak! I cut a fresh mozzarella ball in slices and garnished the soup with it.
