Growing Roma tomatoes in your vegetable garden? Then you have to try this recipe for roasted tomato sauce!
  • 36 ripe Roma tomatoes
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • handful fresh basil, finely chopped
  • handful fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • handful fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  1. Preheat your oven to 300° and line a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick foil.
  2. Chop your herbs, onion and garlic and place in a small bowl along with the olive oil. Then add the sugar, salt & pepper. Allow this to sit while you prep the tomatoes.
  3. Slice each of your tomatoes in half and then remove the seeds.
  4. Pour the olive oil mixture over the tomatoes, and using your hands, mix it in well.
  5. Empty the bowl of tomatoes onto your rimmed baking sheet, and make sure that are in a singular layer, with the inside of the tomato facing up.
  6. Roast in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour and then check on how they are doing. If they are just slightly starting to turn dark around the edges, then it's time to turn up the heat!
  7. Raise the oven temp to 400 degrees, and check on your tomatoes every 15 minutes or so. You want to catch them right as the edges start to turn dark.
  8. Allow them to cool for 30-60 minutes.
  9. Place the roasted tomatoes into your food processor and blend until you get to the desired texture.
