Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce


This was my first time ever making sauce and I have to say I was excited with the results. Don’t worry it is not as involved as you think. When you taste it I promise it will have been worth the trouble.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 3 lbs vine ripe tomatoes (I used Campari)

  • Finely diced garlic – roughly 3-4 cloves

  • Kosher salt

  • Dried Italian herb blend (I used McCormicks Italian grinder)

  • Olive oil (drizzle over at end)


  • Cut and quarter tomatoes.
  • Remove seeds
  • Dice garlic
  • Spread tomatoes in a single layer on a lined (you’ll thank me later for that tip) sheet
  • with salt, pepper and herbs
  • Drizzle olive oil
  • Roast for 45 min
  • Allow to cool.
  • Blend till desired consistency.


  1. As my family likes the seeds I would leave them in and at the end mash them up with a potato masher as it is more fun to have some chunks than a runny sauce.. We also use cut up chunks of zucchini and yellow squash in our mix.

  2. Thanks!

  3. At what temperature did you roast your oven roasted tomatoes for sauce?

    It looks like a great recipe!

    • Hi Rory

      I roasted them at 400 degrees. Just keep an eye out depending on your oven. Maybe turn around halfway through. I hope you enjoy it. It is a really easy and tasty recipe. 🙂
