I made this for lunch during a snow storm. It was the perfect comfort food. Try adding cayenne and cumin or thyme and oregano as variations on flavor.

½ yellow onion chopped
3-5 basal leaves
½ teaspoon garlic powder or 2 cloves fresh garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of ½ of a lemon
¼ teaspoon salt
1 dash of pepper
1 ½ cup homemade chicken stock or low sodium chicken stock
2 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
- Place tomatoes, onion and garlic cloves on a roasting dish and drizzle with olive oil,salt and pepper.
