This is one of my all time favorite recipes of all that I have tried on I have made oven roasted tomatoes for Caprese salad in the past, but thought I would chop them and make home made marinara using them. Next time I will puree half of the tomatoes but am quickly jotting down my ingredients and steps for the marinara because it was simply divine!
