The Best Roast Garlic & Tomato Pasta Sauce

Easy Tomato Pasta Sauce Recipe | Easy Roast Garlic Recipe | Pasta Sauce Recipes

We’re all guilty of grabbing a jar of sauce out the cupboard instead of making the effort to create your own. Sometimes it’s nice to step back and spend a little more time preparing something tastier & healthier than the shop bought counterparts. Especially when it tastes as incredible as this Roast Garlic & Tomato Pasta Sauce! Freshly roasted garlic teamed up with sweet tomatoes and basil. You can’t go far wrong with that can you?!

Here is what you will need to serve 3-4 with your favourite pasta.

(Roast garlic recipe adapted from Simply Recipes)

  • 1 Large Garlic Bulb
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2x 400g Tins of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 tsp Onion Salt
  • 2 tsp Dried Basil
  • Salt for Seasoning
  • 300g of Any Dried Pasta *

 

*I used tortiglioni pasta. 

 

Essential Equipment

  • Small Baking Tray
  • Large Frying Pan

First preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 190°C.

Then peel as much of the papery outer from the garlic bulb as you can and slice the top off to expose all the cloves. Place the bulb onto a piece of tin foil and drizzle over the olive oil.

Wrap it up, pop it on a small baking tray and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the garlic is super soft and squishy. (Yes, that’s the technical terms.)

When it’s cool enough to handle, squeeze out all that beautiful roast garlic, chop it until there are no big bits left and it’s almost a paste.

Then in a large frying pan, tip in the tinned tomatoes, onion salt, basil and the roast garlic. Give it a good stir then bring it to the boil.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes until it’s reduced and thickened. I like my sauces quite thick and chunky but you can stop cooking sooner, whenever it gets to the consistency that you like.

Have a little taste and add any salt if you think it needs it.

All that remains to do is bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the manufacturers instructions.

When it’s cooked, pour a little of the pasta water into the sauce (about 3-4 tbsp) and give it a good stir. This will just bring the sauce together and make it silky & shiny.

Serve immediately and enjoy your home made Roast Garlic & Tomato Pasta Sauce!

My all time favourite shop bought pasta sauce is Loyd Grossman’s Tomato & Roasted Garlic. This recipe beats it. I even surprised myself! It’s amazing how a little bit of effort can go a really long way when it comes to food. It’s SO full of flavour and adding your own roasted garlic makes such a big difference! Garlic becomes incredibly sweet and mellow when roasted and is just divine. You really need to give this one a go, I promise, It might make you leave that jar in the cupboard… it has me!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
