The recipe really only needs 2 ingredients: tomatoes and olive oil. The garlic and fresh herbs are optional. You can also season with Italian dried herb blend in place of the fresh herbs.
- 8-12 large or roma tomatoes halved
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic sliced
- handful of fresh herbs like basil, oregano, thyme
- salt to taste
Heat oven to 425F. Place tomato halves on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Scatter garlic and herbs. Roast 25-30 minutes, until tomatoes softened.
2. Puree in blender or use a potato masher. To thicken, simmer for 5 minutes on stovetop. Season with salt to taste.
