    The baskets of “ugly” tomatoes are now on sale at the farmers market that I go to. This sauce would be a great way to make some really inexpensive, but delicious sauce. Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Delicious! I love roasted tomatoes. I usually put them in quesadillas…I do mine with a cilantro paste…but this sounds wonderful too! Pinning and sharing! I’d love it if you would link it up with us at Foodie Fridays this week…we go live at 9 pm Thursdays nights.

    This looks so good. I can’t wait to try this!

  7. Yum! I make mine almost exactly the same way, except I put the tomatoes in a pot first to cook them a bit. It’s a great way to take advantage of all those tomatoes this time of year.

  8. Roasted tomatoes tried this in soups but in sauce sounds great and bet it would taste awesome….
