Pasta in Roasted Tomato, Onion & Garlic Sauce

Pasta meal is very regular at my home. My daughter, who is an exceptional pasta lover, for her I need to make pastas at least 3-4 times a day and every time she pokes me to try out something new. She says like this," Mom, you try out some new recipe today and post on your blog". Kids nowadays are so smart. So few weeks back, I tried this recipe which was on my to-try list for long time but couldn't get any time to experiment that.

  Tomato, onion and garlic, the three main ingredients slowly roasted in oven with Italian herbs and olive oil dressing and then pureed and cooked along with pastas. Doesn't it sound so yummy? It is absolute yummy at taste, off course it consume some time but all worth it after you taste the sweet at the same time tangy sauce. Once your sauce is ready, just mix it with cooked pasta and you are all set to devour.

You need ::
vegetables of your choice(optional)
Chicken(cooked) : optional [I used chicken sausages]
Oil : 1 tblsp.
Salt to taste
For roasting------
Tomato : 5-6, quartered
Onion : 2, quartered
Garlic : 10-12 cloves(big)
Fresh Thyme/oregano/Basil : a handful, finely chopped
Olive oil : 1-2 tblsp.
Salt and black pepper to taste

How To :
Preparing the roasted sauce :
  • In a big oven-proof dish, arrange cut tomatoes, onions and garlic cubes in single layer for even roasting. Do not overload the dish. Drizzle olive oil evenly over them, sprinkle finely chopped herbs(basil/oregano/thyme), season with salt and black pepper. Stir a little to mix everything well.
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degreeC/400 degreeF and roast for 60-75 minutes or until the edges of tomatoes, onions and garlics have begun to char and all the liquids have dried off. Remove from oven, cool a little and then puree the sauce in a blender.

Cooking Pasta : 
  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of water. Drain and set aside when done. Heat 1tblsp. oil in a pan, stir fry the vegetables if you are adding anything, I added some bell peppers and chicken sausages. Add cooked pasta and finally add pureed sauce. Mix everything well. Season with salt and black pepper if necessary. 
  • Serve hot.
