Roasted Tomato Sauce

Do you need a really easy way to use up a bunch of tomatoes?  My friend Jodie just told me how to make up some tomato sauce that I think is delicious and easy.

All you need to do is slice end-of-the-season-very ripe-tomatoes that need to be used up, into 1/2″ thick slices.  Place them into a large roasting pan that has a light coating of olive oil.  Stack up the tomato slices, sprinkle with chopped onion, peppers, basil, salt, pepper, garlic, red pepper if desired.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 90 minutes.  Blend, pour into freezer containers in 2 cup portions.  Freeze.  Is that simple or what?  I blended in some pine nuts to add a little extra richness, but they are optional.

How easy is that?  You won’t believe how great your house will smell or how tasty this sauce is.  No more Prego, No more Ragu for me.

VOILA!  You have just made use of tomatoes and other produce you might otherwise have put into the compost.
Why didn’t I know how to do this a long time ago?

Try it, you’ll really like it.  I did this while the dinner soup was heating up, we ate dinner, and  dishes were being washed up.  I even get to go to bed at a reasonable hour and I’m not exhausted.
