Roasted Tomato Sauce

Happy Valentines Day!

Today is one of my favorite holidays not because of the material gifts that come along with it. I think it is all about appreciating the people who who love. Thoughtfulness is free so kind words, notes and maybe some delicious food is the best possible thing ( in my opinion)

Cooking for people is such a blessing to me. I probably get that from my Grandma an Mom who have always made people feel welcome with food. Today my recipe is a roasted tomato sauce. It is simple and incredibly tasty. Cook up some pasta with crusty bread and that is heaven to me
