Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine red onions, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes in a large roasting pan. Add garlic. Drizzle oil over vegetables and stir briefly to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Roast vegetables in the preheated oven until tender and starting to blacken at the edges, 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Carefully unpeel the roasted garlic and transfer vegetables to a blender. Add canned tomatoes and basil; puree to desired consistency.

Cook's Note:

Once it's blended I normally place the sauce in a pan to keep warm while I cook the pasta.

If you like bell peppers this is the sauce for you. As written I feel it needs something more. After tasting I did add more roasted garlic (a full bulb total) but it still needed something. I served this with cheese tortelinni but only 1 out of my 3 teens thought it was okay (and all 3 love bell peppers). Since I have a pot full of sauce I will figure out ways to incorporate this in other meals. Read More
