Author Notes

This is another simple sauce using Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes. You can make the sauce and freeze it, then use it with vegetables that you have on hand.

NOTE: You can make this sauce and add a variety of vegetables to it. Keep in mind the cooking times of the various vegetables so that they don’t totally breakdown; add tender vegetables after cooking the hearty vegetables. —Tablecollective
