  • 3 In blender or food processor, place 2 1/2 cups tomato mixture. Cover; blend on medium speed 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour mixture into large bowl. Repeat with remaining tomato mixture. Return pureed mixture to saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until hot. Top each serving with basil.
