from Paige Nemrow:
3 Tbsp. butter or marg.
1 large onion, sliced
1 large carrot, shredded
4-6 large tomatoes, peeled (by dipping into boiling water), seeded, and coarsely chopped (4-5 cups)
1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves or 4-5 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. white sugar
1/8 tsp. white pepper (or black)

In a 3 qt. saucepan cook onion and carrot in butter for about 10 min. Stir in tomatoes, basil, salt, sugar and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 min.
Whirl tomato mixture, a portion at a time, in a food processor or blender until smooth; set aside.
Pour broth into pan and bring to a boil. Add pasta and simmer about 7 min. Stir in tomato mixture and heat through.
