Roasting tomatoes is a perfect use for over-ripe tomatoes that are too mushy to use any other way. You can use roasted tomatoes in a sandwich, in a pasta dish, or as here, in a home-made tomato soup. You can use smoked paprika in this soup, if you’d like. Tomatoes are a wonderful source of the anti-oxidant lycopene.
