How to make Roasted Tomato Basil Pasta & Pizza Sauce Recipe
To begin making the Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce Recipe, preheat oven to 180 C. Wash the tomatoes and slice them in half, making sure the core and the stem are removed.
Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet. Tuck peeled garlic cloves in among the tomatoes. Separate onion slices and scatter among tomatoes. Drizzle all over with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over all.
Roast the tomatoes in the oven for approximately 40 minutes, or until tomatoes are soft and skins begins to brown.
Once the tomatoes have cooled, transfer roasted tomatoes in batches to a blender and pulse until the sauce has reached the desired consistency. I like them in a pureed consistency.
Add salt, chilli flakes and sugar and give them a brisk boil just before you are ready to use the in a pasta or pizza.
Store the Roasted Tomato Pasta & Pizza Sauce in a airtight bottle in the refrigerator for a few days and use as desired.
