This is a great lunch to make if you, like me, are a broke foodie.
Ingredients are garlic, bay leaf, water, salt & freshly ground pepper.
I had two tomatoes that were about to become overripe so used those too.
Method: crush the garlic chop up the tomatoes, add all ingredients to 4 cups of water. This you bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes.
Finish up with toast or crusty bread if you have it, and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. I buy my cheese from Costco and it lasts forever.
