Easy Roasted Tomato Sauce
What do you do with a ton of tomatoes from your garden? What do you do when you want a really really tasty tomato sauce? Here’s what I do.
Last year during tomato season my friend Candy posted a picture on her Facebook page of some roasted tomato sauce she was making. It looked delicious so I checked out the recipe she was using and did a little tweaking. This is what I came up with.
Roasted tomato sauce is so flavorful
Roasting food somehow makes it so delicious. Click here for how to roast broccoli for an out of this world side. This roasted tomato sauce is thick and rich and so flavorful. I planted some paste tomatoes this year and have been using them to make my roasted tomato sauce. They have less liquid in them and it makes the sauce more smokey and a little thicker.
Super easy tomato sauce
Slice your garden tomatoes in half and throw them on a cookie sheet. Chop some onion and a couple of cloves of garlic and toss it on the pan. You don’t need to worry about peels or seeds or anything since you will be passing your vegetables through the food mill. It takes out all those parts.
Sprinkle the mixture with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and some salt and pepper.
Toss the vegetables well and spread them in a single layer with the tomatoes cut side up. Roast them at 400 degrees until the edges are just starting to turn brown.
