I roast my tomatoes and peppers on a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. It is easy for cleanup and also you can get all the good dripping that are created and put it in the processor.
This is the tomatoes with the salt, pepper, evoo, garlic salt and Italian seasoning.
In the following pictures you will also see red sweet peppers which I bought at Sam's. I use these in the sauce to give it an added delicious flavor, you can also use these peppers (before you puree them) on top of homemade pizza or a sandwich.
These are the peppers after 15 or so minutes, see how the onions are starting to become translucent?These are the tomatoes done. You now put them in your food processor and puree them, be sure to get all the good stuff that's on the parchment paper.
Now here is the sauce before the can has been added. As you can see it's fairly thick.
And the final product. With all the flavors from roasting the tomatoes, onions and peppers it makes a great flavorful sauce. I also toss in about 5 or 6 gloves of garlic during the roasting. I have also roasted garlic (the whole head) in foil for future recipes. It makes the garlic very sweet and when you squeeze it from the casing you have almost a paste.
This sauce is great for pasta, pizza and calzones. Really any Italian dish that calls for a red sauce. Try it I'm sure you won't be disappointed. You can buy your tomatoes and peppers from your local grower or even the grocery store (if you had to) If you do choose the later be sure they are the vine or Roma's type for the flavor.
I'd love to know if you try this. Thanks for stopping by, and Remember to Always find the time to Do the All the Things you Love.
