Super Simple Fresh Tomato Sauce

  • Print

  • Tomatoes, very thickly sliced – or cherry tomatoes whole (de-stemmed)
  • Peeled onion, thickly sliced
  • Couple cloves of garlic, peeled
  • Herbs (your choice)
  • Toss it all with a generous glug of olive oil and salt.
  • Put it all on a sheet pan (line the pan with aluminum foil for easy clean up)

Roast at 450 degrees, till just slightly charred (20-45 minutes, depending on size of tomatoes).  Then it goes directly into the food processor (all of it—garlic, onions, herbs, and tomatoes) and pulse till almost but not all the way smooth.  

Before serving, season with chile flakes, add salt, if needed, and a bit of butter

You might serve this with kalamata olives, capers, parsley, basil and/or chicken over pasta or even over farro.  Smear roasted cherry tomatoes over garlic bread.  Recipe brought to you by Sara in San Francisco and
