How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrots, onion and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until they're tender. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Step 2

Stir the broth and tomatoes in the saucepan. Heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften. Push through a food mill or strainer. Return the puréed mixture to the saucepan. Heat to a boil and season to taste.

Step 3

Divide the mixture among 6 serving bowls. Top each with about 2 teaspoons of the pesto.
