Place tomatoes on large sheet pan covered with foil, spray the foil with cooking spray.
Sprinkle the tomatoes with onion powder, garlic powder, basil and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Put in oven for 10-15 minutes to caramelize. Stir several times to keep tomatoes from burning.

Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until slightly tender. Stir occasionally.
Add tomatoes, vegetable broth, juice from canned tomatoes and bay leaf.

Remove from heat and add heavy cream, stir.
Return to heat and cook until thoroughly heated.
