Roasted Marinara Sauce With Fresh Tomatoes

This Roasted Marinara Sauce is a simple way to preserve fresh, ripe tomatoes at their peak and bring out their natural flavor.

We slow-cook them with just a few basic ingredients, like onions, garlic, and basil, to make the most delicious homemade marinara sauce.


– Roma Tomatoes – Olive oil – Sugar – Basil – Onion Powder

Lay the quartered tomatoes on a large baking sheet.  Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Roast the tomatoes in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the tomatoes are golden on top.


While the tomatoes are roasting, heat a large sauce pot over medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.


Once the onions are caramelized, add the garlic and saute until the garlic is soft about 2-3 more minutes, then remove from heat until the tomatoes are finished roasting.


Once the tomatoes have roasted, remove from the oven and transfer them to the pot with the onions, discarding any watery tomato juice.
