When I think of summer vegetables, tomatoes are the first to come to mind. It’s time to try and make your own tomato sauce.
Roasting tomatoes is my favorite way to make a homemade sauce. Roasting them with garlic also adds a lot more flavor. I love fresh herbs and I always have them on hand during the summer time. In my tomato sauce I like to add tons of fresh basil and fresh oregano. Fresh herbs are the key to brightening up any dish.
