This is our special Pomodoro tomato sauce recipe, where we roast the tomatoes with garlic and olive oil to really bring out the flavor of the tomatoes. One of the unique things about this recipe is the combination of 3 different types of tomatoes. The Roma, Campari and cherry tomato combine to make an exciting flavor.
