1/2 teaspoon of salt

Cut the tomatoes in bite-sized pieces and place them with the tomato liquid in a saucepan; add the onions, tomato paste, chicken broth, bay leaf, salt & pepper.

Bring to a boil; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Cool about 15 minutes, tehn turn into a blender or food processor fitted with a steel blade.
