Make the most of season with this surprisingly simple and delicious Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce. This sauce is delicious on pasta, sandwiches and pizza!
I first made this recipe when I had an excess of cherry tomatoes and wanted to make some quick, simple and delicious. And boy was I happy with the result! This sauce is insanely easy to make and makes a delicious punch of fresh flavor.
If you want you can add fresh herbs such as basil , thyme or parsley. But I like to keep it simple and straightforward with just tomatoes, a little onion, red bell peppers and garlic. It's fantastic served with pasta or as a dipping sauce. It's also great on pizzas and sandwiches. Enjoy!

I kept the sauce simple but feel free to get creative with add ins.
It's great blended up with a little fresh basil, parsley or thyme. You can even add a splash of cream or lemon juice if you prefer. For a spicier sauce add in some red pepper flakes before roasting.
