Tis the season of tomatoes. The end of summer marks a bountiful supply of tomatoes in your garden, at the farmer’s market or local farm stands. You can get a case of seconds (you don’t need pristine tomatoes as your going to chop them up & roast them) in most cases under $12. Out of one case of tomatoes I can make 2 large batches of this soup & several containers of marinara sauce recipe here. Roasting them & dividing them to prep differently allows you to work efficiently in preparation. Plus you can stock your freezer up for easy & flavorful dinners all winter long. My marinara sauce also doubles as our pizza sauce. Endless uses and the flavor of roasted tomatoes is unparalleled. Seriously.
