Fabulous tomato sauce doesn’t need to simmer for hours. In fact, it doesn’t even need to simmer. Simply oven-roasting tomatoes for half an hour adds a light smoky-sultry taste you can’t buy in any jar.
Make it Decadent
Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) whipping cream and 1/3 cup (75 mL) vodka to sauce, if you wish. Simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until hot, about 5 minutes. Excellent with scallops or shrimp over linguine with shredded fresh basil on top.
