Roasted Tomato Basil Sauce

I'd pinned this tomato sauce recipe awhile back and it finally made it on our menu this week. I love this recipe not only for its taste, but also for its ability to be made ahead of time and for its versatility. I served this over saut√©ed shrimp, but it would be just as good over grilled chicken or as a pizza sauce too.

Enjoy!

Roasted Tomato Basil Sauce from With Style & Grace

Ingredients

- 3 pints cherry tomatoes (Rinse before using.)
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced (I keep a big jar of pre-minced garlic in my fridge at all times!)
- 1 tablespoon salt (I used truffle salt.)
- 3/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (When in doubt go "steal" some basil from your Mama's herb garden!)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place rinsed tomatoes on a baking sheet and add garlic, salt, and olive oil. Use your hands to make sure all the tomatoes are evenly coated.

Bake/roast for 15-30 minutes or until tomatoes have browned and softened.

Remove and let tomato mixture cool then place mixture into a blender with chopped basil. Puree to your liking.

Top over shrimp, grilled chicken, use as a pizza...the options are endless!
