Easy Roasted Tomato Sauce

full star full star full star empty star empty star

This is an absolutely wonderful recipe for sauce: you simply halve the tomatoes, drape them with some onions, garlic, seasonings, and olive oil, and then ignore them for two hours while the oven reduces them to a caramelized and sauce-ready pan of sweet flesh. A quick run through a food mill or blender, and the sauce is ready to eat or freeze. Easy peasy. And you can make it at night, if you like, the better to not be oppressed by the heat of the oven. A side note: try buttering your hot spaghetti before saucing; it adds so much delicious richness.
