Roasted Tomato Sauce

Sweet Pea's Roasted Tomato Sauce

Paula from Sweet Pea shared this recipe and it sounded great.
I've also shared Paula's Cauliflower Mac and Cheese on Y'all Come Eat - another family favorite!
Because my boys have turned out to be good eaters, I'm happy to give them a couple of foods that I will never make them eat. 
For both kids tomatoes tops that list. 
They don't like marinara sauces that have big chunks of chopped tomatoes or peppers. 
And jarred sauce is always chunky - even if it says it's not. 
So I usually strain it to remove the big chunks {pain}.

I've been thinking that homemade sauce might just be easier (and tastier) so I was happy to see Paula's recipe and wanted to try it out.

I chopped tomatoes, onion, and two bell peppers and mixed them in a large baking dish.
I included two hot peppers that a friend gave us to roast for David as well, but didn't mix them in with the final product.
I tossed the vegetables with olive oil, salt, and pepper and roasted them for 1 hour.
Then I added the basil and oregano and roasted them for another 30 minutes.
A quick pulse in the food processor and it was delicious with linguine last night and half we put in the freezer for another night.

I've modified the recipe slightly, and I think it's one of those that's easy to make your own with your own change-ups.
