  • 8 cups tomatoes (mix of cherry & medium is my go to!)
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • 8-10 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • basil leaves


  • Core tomatoes. Slice in 1/2. Spread tomatoes, onions and garlic onto a single layer on a large baking dish. Drizzle liberally with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt & freshly cracked black pepper.
  • Roast at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Spend the time you are waiting for these to roast in your kitchen because THE AROMA IS MAGICAL. You'll know its ready when your tomatoes are charred a bit and the garlic is perfectly roasted.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes, then move to a blender and puree until smooth.
  • Enjoy over pasta or as a dipping sauce for garlic breadsticks (or both!)
