One Classy Dish Recipe


1. Roast Roma tomatoes on foil at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until the skin beings to blacken

2. Put the whole tomatoes, including charred skin, & juices, into a food processor

or blender with basil, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, & sugar.  

3. Blend to form a thick sauce & use warm water to thin if necessary.

4. Toss sauce through warm pasta & serve with grated Parmesan cheese & fresh basil.


Roma tomatoes are the best tomatoes for a marinara sauce, but other work as well. You can always add more basil or more garlic for a richer flavor, or even some red pepper flakes for some heat. Another healthy modification would be to use spaghetti squash in place of pasta.
