DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cut top 1/4 off garlic head and cut around to expose as many cloves as possible.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and place on a baking dish or in a roasting pan (I usually roast vegetables along side it because it makes the vegetables nice and garlicky).
  • Place whole red pepper in dish and place in oven.
  • Roast for 1 hour or until cloves are soft and mushy inside (you should be able to squeeze a clove and have all the garlic goodness come right out).
  • Place red pepper in plastic ziploc bag and seal, let sit about 10-15 minutes or until it cools and is easy enough to handle.
  • Meanwhile, pour can of diced tomatoes in blender.
  • Add balsamic vinegar, salt, sugar and red pepper flakes.
  • Squeeze cloves out of garlic head (you can leave the skins on).
  • Once pepper has cooled, peel off skin (it should come right off), cut open, take out seeds and remove stem
  • Place pepper in blender.
  • Puree mixture until blended.
  • Stir in cornstarch.
  • Heat up on stove when ready to eat or store in container and freeze for later.
