There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of steaming pasta. When I was a few years younger, I thought Alfredo was the ultimate, but as I get older, my taste buds have changed and I am no partial to a far more simple sauce….tomato!!!
What I wanted was a thick, reduced and intense tomato sauce and that you can only get 1 way!!!
Roasting you tomatoes are the easiest and simplest thing to do, yet it makes a huge difference in the result of your sauce. It is hard to  beat the rustic smokiness of the roasted tomatoes.

Roasted Garlic and Tomato Sauce

500gr cocktail tomatoes
1 whole head garlic – broken into loose cloves-unpeeled
1 onion – peeled and cut into chunks
a few glugs of olive oil
a few glugs of balsamic vinegar
coarse salt
1 tsp sugar

Toss the tomatoes, garlic and onion in a roasting pan and lavishly sprinkle all other ingredients over the top. Slow-roast until the garlic is soft and the tomatoes are starting to break up and caramelize. Place all the ingredients into a blender and blitz to preferred state…chunky or smooth.

1 onion-finely chopped
500ml of Passata di Pomodoro – tomato puree(not paste)
fresh thyme
1 tbsp sugar
roasted tomato mix- the one you have just made in the blender
125ml red wine

Sautee the onion in some olive oil, add all other ingredients and cook until thick and reduced. Add the cooked pasta(500gr dry) to the tomato sauce and cook for about 2 minutes. Serve with freshly ground pepper, parmesan, bacon bits and fresh rocket.!!!!

    THAT'S my problem! I've only been using half a glug! There is nothing like an easy pasta dish for a hard day!

    Ripe-ripe tomatoes need little adorment, especially when roasted and as small and sweet and these. I want a large bowl.

    Oh how wonderful that looks! Just one technical question – if you roast the garlic unpeeled, then even after blending, won't you still get unchewable bits of garlic peel in your sauce?
