Pasta with baked fresh tomato sauce: a really delicious, easy, authentic Italian dish

The baked tomato souce is a fantastic alternative to the normal tomato souce. And you may prepare and  store this sauce in jars vacuum to have it always ready.


Here what you need:
600 grams of cherry tomatoes or Pachino tomatoes,  2 cloves of peeled garlic into small pieces, 8 tablespoon of  EVO oil, coarse salt to taste, abundant oregano, a bit of sugar, baking paper


First of all, turn on the oven at 180 degrees – if the oven is static 165 degrees will be enough.

Put the baking paper into the pan, grease with a couple of tablespoons of oil the bottom and pour the tomatoes cut in half.

Well distribute the tomatoes in the baking-pan. Bake and cook , stirring occasionally for about 45 minutes or until the liquid of the tomatoes has evaporated almost completely . Here the final result:


While the tomatoes are cooking, boil water and cook the pasta al dente your preference .Al dente cooking not only makes the dough more enjoyable as it maintains consistency and crispness , but it is much more digestible.

At this point you just have to dress the pasta with your sauce of roasted tomatoes and enjoy it .


And you may also store this sauce  in jars vacuum to have always ready! I prepare many pots in late summer, so I can enjoy sun-ripened tomatoes for all the winter.
