 This is a "A Quick Warm-Up" recipe from the Oct
 1995 Vegetarian times.  It is listed as a 30 mins
 or less recipe (as they call it low-fat and fast!)
 Tomato-Basil Soup with Orzo
 If you still have a few ripe tomatoes, this soup is certain
 to bring back the August warmth.  If not, use good-quality
 canned Italian plum tomatoes.
 1/4 cup dry sherry or apple juice
 1/2 medium onion, minced
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 1/2 cup diced red bell peppers
 4 cups chopped fresh or canned tomatoes
 1 cup vegetable stock
 1/3 cup orzo pasta
 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
 In a soup pot, heat a little veggie broth and sherry over
 medium heat.  Saute onion and garlic and pepper 8 to 10
 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is soft but not
 brown. (add small amounts of water if mixture is too dry.)
 Add tomatoes and broth; bring to a boil.  Add pasta; cook 5
 minutes, stirring.  Cover; simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
 Add basil and serve hot.  Makes 4 servings.
