Recipe looks good! Could you add more directions on roasting and peeling tomatoes and peppers for those of us who haven't done it?

I used this recipe to use up the left over not quite ripe cherry tomatoes from my garden. It turned out great. I made lasagna with the sauce and some lowfat cottage cheese topped with skim milk mozzarella cheese. Great for my diet.
