This is excellent. Great flavors. I did not do the roasting of the tomatoes and added the tomatoes, capers and wine to the pan with the vegetables. I simmered for about 20 minutes and then added it to the tomato juice mixture. Then I let that simmer for 20 minutes. Nice and thick! Really nice tomato sauce!
