roasted tomato sauce

very simple recipe, made up by me! paul is going to make chicken parm tonight with this.

start with tomatoes: i think any kind works, or any combination of kinds. just use up what you have or buy whatever from the store!

step 1: preheat oven to ~400-450. half tomatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper, drizzle with oil, and generously sprinkle salt and pepper on top. add some minced garlic on top, as well as whatever herbs/ spices you have around. (i put fresh thyme on this time)

step 2: remove pans from oven when tomatoes are caramelized on the bottom and soft/ slightly caramelized on top. let cool for a few minutes, then transfer tomatoes to a food processor. add more fresh herbs (i did basil + more thyme), as well as salt/pepper to taste and about 1/4 teaspoon of sugar. pulse until you reach desired consistency.
