Ingredients

2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped peeled potato
½ cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery, including some tops
2 packets Sweet’N Low zero calorie sweetener
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil

1 can (14 ½ ounces) no-salt-added whole tomatoes with liquid
1 ½ pounds fresh tomatoes, peeled and quartered

In 4-quart microwavable casserole dish, combine celery, onion, potato, carrot, and margarine. Cook, covered, on high power 6 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes. Stir in fresh tomatoes, canned tomatoes with liquid, and bay leaf. Continue cooking, covered, 20 minutes or until potato is fork tender, stirring once or twice. Discard bay leaf.
