Sauces are such an important part of our cooking. Many a times they form the base of many dishes. There are a number of sauces made throughout the world, all varying as per the regions and their cuisines.

Slow Roasted Tomato Garlic Sauce is an absolutely delicious and versatile sauce with a shelf life of a few days too, if stored in a refrigerator. The slow roasting process creates a wonderful flavour as during the process, the flavours of all the ingredients assimilate well.

This sauce when mixed with a little white sauce, creates magic when used to prepare pasta. It can even be mixed with a little tomato ketchup or barbeque sauce to be used as a pizza sauce or even in grilled sandwiches with a veg or non veg filling of choice! And I suppose, it would work well in a baked casserole as well! We can still find ways to use it though, as it’s flavour creates umpteen choices!
