    Grease's Note:

    This recipe makes a delicious pasta sauce (which is considerably “lighter” and more subtle than a typical marinara) while roasting the loin. The results, when combined with a little pasta and a fresh green salad, make even me look like a competent cook. By the way, if you go to the trouble of bringing out the food processor for the tomatoes, put it to work on the vegetables as well. It speeds up the recipe and smoothes out the pasta sauce.

      What a great way to cook a pork loin. It turned out so tender and the sauce was good too. Next time I'll add minced garlic because we like the flavor and a pinch of sugar to cut the acid from the tomatoes. I will be making this again!
