Sweet Grape Tomatoes Sauced up
Like with any homemade sauce, your sauce will only be as tasty as your ingredients. If you've checked out any of my other recipes you'll hear me say that a lot. If you grab the cheapest tasteless grape tomatoes in your market, your sauce will also turn out less than spectacular. When I first played with this recipe I used sweet grape tomatoes from our garden and fresh basil from our yard. I was so delighted with the taste! So please, for the love of cooking, use the sweetest grape tomatoes that taste great on their own. My kids love grape tomatoes, but if I come home with a tasteless variation, they will let me know and they won't touch them. Kids...you know.
Blend it Up
The beauty of this recipe is you don't have to stand in front of a pot waiting for your tomatoes to cook down; slowly adding seasoning. After roasting your tomatoes and garlic your blender will turn your hot tomatoes and garlic into a delicious sauce in just a few pulses.
