Sometimes you go out of town on vacation and then you come home and get sick and then you go outside and see buckets of ripe tomatoes.
Such a beautiful site. So you have to decide what to do with all those red jewels. First things first. You eat as many warm off the vine tomatoes as you can. You eat them plain. You eat them on white bread with salt and pepper. You eat them with fresh basil. You cut them up on your cereal. Well, that last one would be weird, but I could hardly blame you. Next, you give them away to people who you want to love you. Lastly, you make this tomato sauce.
This is a yummy roasted tomato sauce that you can freeze and later use for pizza sauce, tomato sauce, tomato soup, etc. And the best part if that it is easy enough to make with a baby hanging on your leg, and your house will smell wonderful. Here is what you need:
2 lbs Tomatoes
3 Bell Peppers
1 Garlic Clove
Koshier Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Sugar/Stevia (just a tad)
Preheat the oven to 350. Prepare a pan (or if you are like me and lost your beloved jelly roll pan while moving, prepare pans) with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Wash and cut/quarter the tomatoes and place on the pan. Slice onion, peppers, and garlic and toss on the pan with the tomatoes. Drizzle everything with olive oil, salt, pepper, and sugar. Roast in the preheated oven for about two hours.
Put everything into an orange blender, and blend until smooth or your desired consistency.
Eat a few bites with a spoon. Eat a few more. Cool a bit, pour into zip lock bags, and then stick into the freezer!
Lastly feel happy and productive thinking how glad you will be this winter when instead of buying sad tomatoes in cans, you will have this in your freezer.
