We decided to make some fresh pasta sauce today to use the last of our Roma Tomatoes. The boys rinsed them and then helped scoop out the gloop after I cut them into 1/2. We scattered diced leeks and whole fresh garlic on a baking pan, and then place the scooped halves skin up on the pan. We sprinkled over some of the dried herbs from our garden and some sea salt.
They baked for about 45 minutes on 325.
The smell was awesome. They came out when nice and roasted.
We put everything into the cuisinart for a whiz before going into a pot. We added just a little bit of red wine and some more of our dried garden herbs (thyme, oregano, rosemary).
We let it just sit and simmer for a few hours and get nice and dark and thick. What is next? Well, we need some pasta to go with it!
