It really isn’t rocket science here – I took two cookie sheets (with edges) of garden tomatoes and cut out the stems. I drizzled them with olive oil, Italian Seasoning and fresh diced garlic. Then I popped them in a 350* oven for about 30 minutes.

I removed them from the oven, added a few fresh basil leaves and popped them into my handy dandy Blendtech blender and gave it a spin. I personally like my sauce a little thin so I REALLY blended it.
