Roasted Roma Marinara

Jump To Recipe

This Roasted Roma Marinara is the last recipe from our summer tomatoes! (sniff, sniff)  The tomato plants have produced all they’re going to produce and it’s time to make room for the fall/winter garden.  Hard to believe summer has flown by so quickly!

The Roasted Roma Marinara recipe below is a basic marinara sauce, kicked up a notch by roasting the tomatoes beforehand.  Roasting tomatoes is the only way I will make marinara from now on.  It gave them a subtle smokiness that made the sauce that much better.  I only added chopped fresh basil and in my opinion, it was the only herb needed.  The ingredients are so simple, yet so flavorful, I didn’t want to add too much else for fear of taking the simplicity away.  The next time I make this sauce, I’ll double or triple the batch and freeze the extra for nights when an easy dinner solution is needed.
