Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Tomato Slices and Sauce

Neither Todd nor I are big fans of raw tomatoes.  Trevor likes them sometimes, but he definitely can’t eat a whole one before it goes bad.  So I decided to roast some tomato slices up for sandwiches.  After they were roasted, being the fickle foodie that I am, I decided I’d rather make a tomato sauce out of them.  You can either eat the slices roasted, or go a step farther like I did and make a sauce.

What you need:

For the roasted tomato slices:

  • tomato slices
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • dried basil
  • minced garlic
  • minced onion

For the sauce:

  • roasted tomatoes
  • tomato paste
  • water

How to make it:

Roasted Tomatoes:

  1. Place tomato slices on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the top of them.
  3. Sprinkle on the salt, pepper, basil, garlic and onion to taste.
  4. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
  5. Turn the heat up to 4oo degrees and roast for about 5 more minutes.

Tomato Sauce:

  1. Chop up the roasted tomato slices and put into a blender or food processor.
  2. Spoon in about a half of a can of tomato paste.
  3. Add a few tablespoons of water.
  4. Puree the sauce, adding more water as needed to thin the sauce to your desired consistency.

It makes a great sauce for Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches!
