Cream of Tomato Soup

This is one of those recipes from my Mom and sister where "it's a little of this and a little of that".  Hope it works..(let me know if it doesn't)

1/4-1/2 onion
1 clove garlic
2 large carrots
3/4 red pepper
Cook the above in 3 tbsp of butter  (or olive oil)

Add 2-32 oz can of tomatoes to the mixture
Cook-add fresh basil
Cook a few more minutes
Blend with braun (hand blender)

White Sauce
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
3 c milk (use some cream in this)

Add the white sauce to the tomato.  Don't overcook or it could separate.  You can add some more cream if you want.

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Eat with homemade croutons.
