Laurie’s Baked Tomato Sauce

Yields1 ServingPrep Time30 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 30 mins

Jill and I have a new way of making tomato sauce.   It's a baked tomato sauce that our friend Laurie has been cooking for a while.  It's baked and it has lots of butter and garlic. It's rich and the whole cloves of garlic are a spectacular addition.


 2 Large cans (28 oz) whole tomatoes
 16 Cloves of garlic, peeled. Yes - 16!Double it if you want to be bold. 16 is NOT bold.
 ½ cup Butter (1 stick). Cut into pieces.
 2 tsp Salt
 2 tsp Pepper
 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper

Preheat oven to 425.


Place tomatoes in a 9 x 13 casserole dish, mix in spices, spread garlic and butter pieces evenly around the dish, place in the oven.


Bake for 1 hour.


Take out of the oven, gently smash (can you really gently smash?) tomatoes and garlic cloves with a potato masher, and you are ready to serve!
