This roasted tomato sauce is perfect with fresh tomatoes from your garden. It is so delicious you won’t buy jar sauce again and best of all it’s easy!
So today I had 4 nice vine tomatoes just hanging out on my kitchen counter. When suddenly I remembered a cooking show I saw recently at the gym. (Yes I know watching cooking shows while working out is rather ridiculous.) Anyway, I remember it seemed simple and it looked delicious so I decided to just make my own version. Let me tell you this will be a regular at my house…especially when summer comes and we are bombarded with fresh tomatoes.
How I make roasted tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes
First you need a few ripe tomatoes. This is great when you are bombarded with fresh tomatoes from the garden but you can also use tomatoes from the store.
Quarter these and add to a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Add a few cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and Italian seasonings and you are good to go.
Roast them in a 375 degree oven for about an hour and they should look like this.
Next you mash them a bit with a potato masher and voila! You have roasted tomato sauce. Serve with pasta, other veggies, on a sandwich or just with a piece of bread. It really is simple and delicious!!!
