Meal Prep is a great way to start off the busy Fall season and with that in mind, I’ve come up with a simple but heavenly delicious, 5 ingredient recipe that is very easy to make, requires little active work and tastes incredible! This is a great sauce to prepare ahead and then use in a variety of ways all week long.

It’s been a hit with all my taste testers (of various ages and dietary preferences), and I just know that it will become a favorite in your world, too! So let's get cooking!

  • Deep baking dish
  • Blender


  • 2 lbs Fresh tomatoes (about 6)
  • 1 head Garlic
  • 2 Red peppers
  • 2-3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Tomato paste
  • Handful fresh basil leaves


  • Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • Cut tomatoes and peppers into equal size chunks. 
  • Cut the top off the garlic bulb so you can see the tip of each garlic clove.
  • Add tomatoes, peppers and garlic into a baking dish and drizzle oil on top. Mix them a little bit to coat everything well in oil and then place the garlic cut side down in the dish.
  • Roast in the oven for about 30-35 minutes (checking to be sure nothing burns) and you should see the oil and veggie juices bubbling as they cook. 
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool.
  • Once cooled, remove the garlic cloves from the paper-like skin of the bulb, then add garlic, tomatoes, peppers, basil and tomato paste to a high speed blender.  Blend for about 2 minutes or until well blended and creamy. 
  • Use immediately on fresh pasta (or anywhere you enjoy tomato sauce) OR decante and refrigerate in a sealed glass container for up to two weeks. 
  • PRO TIP: When I prepare this sauce I like to add an extra garlic bulb so I have roasted garlic ready for other dishes. Enjoy!
