Roasted Tomato & Feta Sauce

About This Recipe:

Get ready for your home to smell like your favorite Italian restaurant, because this roasted tomato and feta sauce is divine. Of course I use jarred tomato sauce for emergencies like everyone else, but fresh, slow roasted tomato sauce simply cannot be beat. I chose to use beefsteak tomatoes, but you could also use 8-10 plum tomatoes or anything equivalent to that quantity. Goat cheese would be a delicious substitute for feta if for some strange reason you do not like feta. You’ll want to make extra to keep in the fridge for the week!

Enjoy!

Ingredients (4 servings)
-4- 6 large beefsteak tomatoes (about 3 lbs,) cut into wedges
-4 oz feta
-2 tbls fresh basil, chopped
-Olive oil

Seasonings
-2 tsps dried basil
-1 tsp dried oregano
-1 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp onion powder
-1-2 tsps white sugar
-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
-Salt & pepper

Instructions (1 hour 15 minutes) 
1. Place the tomatoes in a baking dish, and drizzle with 2-3 tbls of olive oil. Sprinkle all of the seasonings over the tomatoes and toss to coat evenly. Bake at 400 degrees F for 1 hour.
2. Once done, use the back of a large spoon to crush the tomatoes into a sauce like consistency. Add in the feta and mash to combine with the tomatoes.
3. Serve with your favorite pasta and top with the fresh basil.
