Easy Homemade Roasted Tomato Sauce

Easy Homemade Roasted Tomato Sauce

I’ve been trying to break out of a food rut. It seemed like I was getting to the point where I was cooking the same seven dinners over and over and over again each week. Needless to say, dinner was getting kind of boring because we know that variety is the spice of life. So I decided that for the month of April I was going to try not to have any repeat dinners for the entire month. I’ve enjoyed making lots of new dishes for dinner this month. I’ve had a lot of hits and a few that I probably won’t try again. But it’s been fun cooking and trying new meals for dinner.

Last week I made a really easy homemade roasted tomato sauce that was delicious. I had been watching Rev. Run’s Sunday Supper’s on Netflix and there was an episode where they featured a homemade tomato sauce. Which made me want to try making a homemade tomato sauce, but the recipe featured on the show called for squeezing the seeds out of all of the tomatoes. The whole squeezing the seeds out of all the tomatoes is not for me. So I opted to find an easier way of making homemade tomato sauce.

I also wanted to try a sauce that was roasted because in my opinion nothing tastes better than roasted veggies (I know a tomato is technically a fruit but I think of it as a veggie). I found a recipe on Martha Stewart for Roasted Tomato Sauce, but I still had to tweak it to make it a really easy sauce that I would enjoy making. Because just like I didn’t want to squeeze out the tomato seeds. I also didn’t want to have peel the tomatoes either. So I simplified Martha Stewart’s recipe and came up with the following.

I used this easy homemade roasted tomato sauce on top of some gluten-free spaghetti for a simple dinner.

      I never watched their reality show. We only have limited basic cable which is mostly just the channels that are already free. But with the digital conversion, we couldn’t get PBS to show up. So we have to pay for cable just so that we can get PBS to show up. But it’s totally worth it since our kids learn so much from PBS.
      We also have Netflix so I’m jus now seeing Rev Run’s Sunday Suppers since they just added it.

    I love gluten-free spaghetti. Even more when it’s rice pasta or whatnot, and not zucchini noodles pretending to be noodles!
    Homemade sauce is the best.

      I like the brown rice pasta too, but I don’t mind the zucchini imposter…lol 🙂 But I know what you mean the rice pasta is just so much more filling. The zucchini is good for when you want a really light meal.

    This looks delicious, Sonya! And so healthy too which is a huge bonus for me :). I’ll definitely have to try it. Thanks for sharing! I’m really trying to cook more these days. We are still having issues with eating out too much. I desperately need more tasty, easy recipes using whole foods like this.
