Roasted tomato spaghetti sauce

Marinara sauce is a great product to add to your pantry as there is so much that can be done with it. By adding some meat or a few green veggies on pasta or even potatoes you can have a great meal in a cinch.

I love the taste of roasted tomatoes, onions, and garlic. Roasting them brings out a different depth and sweetness in flavor. They are therefore great when added to soups and sauces with a touch of sugar. By making your own pasta sauce you can be sure of what is going into them. I love that there are no preservatives or colorants hiding in it like in canned sauces.

If you don’t have fresh tomatoes you can substitute it for canned ones. It will still be delicious.
