This is one of the most delicious tomato sauces we’ve ever tasted. You’ll want to make this sauce using summertime tomatoes. They really taste their best this time of year. If possible, buy them at your local Farmer’s Market or look for locally grown tomatoes at your supermarket. You can also use whole cherry tomatoes or “gourmet” varieties. We’ve made ours skinny by using 3 tablespoons of olive oil for roasting. Normally it’s made with ½ cup.
