This homemade Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta Sauce is creamy, flavourful and versatile. Make it in large batches and use in any pasta dish!
The inspiration for this recipe came when I was given a massive bag of garden tomatoes and I had to figure out what to do with them before they ripened too quickly. At the same time, I learned that October is National Pasta Month and Barilla gifted me with a few boxes of their pasta varieties (this is not a sponsored post). For the last several months, I have been relying on store-bought pasta sauce (which there is nothing wrong with) but I wanted to try my hand at making an even tastier homemade version. I might be a little biased but I think this Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta Sauce rose to the occasion.
This recipe is very straightforward and doesn’t require a long list of ingredients. Here is all you will need:
Once the tomatoes and garlic are roasted and cooled, the next steps are incredibly easy. All you have to do is transfer them into a blender or food processor, add the herbs and goat cheese and blend until smooth. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add 1-2 tbsp of vegetable broth at a time, blending well in between each addition, until your desired texture is achieved.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container. You can keep it in the fridge for 4-5 days or in the freezer for 3-5 months. When you are ready to eat it, heat it up on the stove or in the microwave. Serve it on top of your preferred choice of pasta. I recommend adding a source of protein and some vegetables to create a balanced meal. For example, mix in some lentils and spinach for a plant-based version or opt for ground meat and sauteed mushrooms. Stay tuned because I also have a delicious baked pasta recipe, which uses this Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta Sauce, coming to the blog very soon!
