Fire Roasted Tomato Sauce
 
Ingredients
 
6 firm tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 sweet red pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tbsp fresh thyme
Salt and freshly ground pepper
 
 
Directions
 
Prepare a charcoal grill and let it burn until coals are white ash. Cut the tomatoes in half and place skin side down on the grill. Cook until skins are blackened, about 3 minutes cool slightly and peel. Finely chop and blend with the olive oil, sweet red pepper, basil, and fresh thyme in a sauté pan. Bring to a simmer over medium to low heat and cook until sauce is reduced, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve over pasta or lasagna.
