    jennifer in new jersey's Note:

    i came up with this recipe when i was snowed in and was unable to make it to the grocery store for weekly shopping. i think it is simple, and has a very rustic, good,strong taste to it. if you dont like garlic you may want to cut down on the amount. you also can used canned tomatoes and drain them then roast them, but it definitly changes the flavor. i have also made it with good italian olives and tuna for a different taste. i use it with bowtie pasta but any pasta would do and i have also used it as a warm bread dip for a good italian bread.

      An interesting variation on pasta sauce, this has the sweetness that one would expect from roasted veggies. I did have to make one change -- I'm allergic to eggplant, so I used zucchini instead. I had to roast the veggies much longer than the 25 minutes, but maybe I didn't cut my veggies small enough. The next time I make this, I *will* cut the veggies smaller anyway (and peel the zucchini), as I think it would improve the texture of the finished product; the onions and zucchini skins stayed chunkier than I would have preferred if I were going to use this as a dipping sauce. I'll also cut down on the oil a bit, as it's a little heavy for me. But the flavor is good, and it smelled wonderful as it was cooking. I'll make this again! And it makes a LOT of sauce... definitely more than 2 servings. I'd say it's more like 4, even when used over pasta.)
