    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.

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