Add the basil stalks and the remaining garlic, cooking until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes with their juice, and an additional half can full of water. Use a wooden spoon or kitchen scissors to break up the tomatoes, while bringing to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add the torn-up bread pieces to the pan, along with the rest of the basil, torn. . When the roasted tomatoes are done, scrape them into the soup pot with all their juices and stickiness.

it will be rather thick and porridgy. Divide between bowls and float some additional olive oil on top. Top with more basil and serve.
