In oven, place top rack in upper third of the oven. Preheat oven
to 400 degrees. Place tomato halves (skin side down) on large
baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with ample
amounts of salt and pepper. Place on top rack in oven, roast for
30 - 40 minutes, or until fully cooked. Remove and cool.
Make pesto by placing basil leaves in blender or food
processor, followed by pine nuts and olive oil, puree. Blend in
Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Bring chicken stock to boil in large sauce pan or Dutch oven.
When tomatoes have cooled enough to handle, use a spoon to
scoop tomato from skins and into broth. Discard skins.
Stir pesto to tomato / broth mixture, bring to boil. Tear bread
into small pieces and add to broth. Stir well until bread has
mostly dissolved into broth.
