I admit it, I love roasted vegetables. It enhances the flavor, and with just olive oil and some salt and pepper you get a very honest flavor. One of my favorite sauces is a simple puree of roasted vegetables. It is great on pasta or as a base for soup. The recipe makes a large batch of sauce so I would have some to freeze, but the recipe is easily halved for those who do not want to stash sauce away.
