  • 10 Roma Tomatoes (small) http://amzn.to/2ixTliS
  • 10 leaves Fresh Basil http://amzn.to/2jVF6AB
  • 4 cloves Garlic http://amzn.to/2gRXyJa
  • 2 Shallots http://amzn.to/2j0SR0p
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil (more to taste) http://amzn.to/2fMTfgW
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt (more to taste) http://amzn.to/2ixZJGM
  • To taste Pepper http://amzn.to/2gmtsQA



  • Place 1/3 of the olive oil Heavy Baking Dish
  • Take about 4 Garlic cloves (more or less to taste) out of the paper.  Smash them with the flat part of the knife and add them to the Oil.
  • Cut the ends off the Shallots.  Slice the Shallots in half.  Remover the outer skin and place cut side down into the Oil.
  • Add your whole tomatoes.  
  • Season with Pepper and about 1/2 teaspoon of Salt.
  • Place another 1/3 of the Olive Oil on top of the Tomatoes.
  • Stir Tomatoes until they're thoroughly coated in Olive Oil.
  • Bake in 425 degree oven for about an hour or until the tops of the Tomatoes start to burn just a little bit.
  • Transfer ingredients directly from the oven into a Mixing Bowl.
  • Add remaining Oil, about 8-10 leaves of Fresh Basil.
  • Mix with an Blender until you reach the desired consistency.  (Caution:  if you use a regular blender, the hot ingredients will build up pressure and could potentially make a huge hot mess.  Be very careful, ensuring that the pressure does not build up in the tightly sealed blender.)
  • Add more salt if necessary to bring out the flavor.
  • Serve with your favorite pasta!
