Fresh Roasted Tomato Sauce

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

I was standing in the grocery listening to this woman talking about how she roasts her tomatoes before making them into sauce. I thought that was a great idea so I tried it. It was so easy and I was able to sneak a few extra veggies into it for the kids. I used half Romas and half Better Boys. For thicker sauce use all Romas.

This was very easy to prepare, however, the taste and texture was like that of a good homemade tomato soup...nothing like a sauce. It was a disappointment! Imagine serving your pasta with a large ladle of tomato soup and you will have the idea!
