Grill-Roasted Tomato Sauce

Unlike most commercially prepared pasta sauces, this one is sugar-free. If you find that you miss the slightly sweeter taste, feel free to add a tablespoon of honey to the warm, finished sauce.

Directions

  1. Lightly coat a grill basket or grill wok with cooking spray; set aside. Place tomatoes and onion in a large bowl; drizzle with oil and gently toss to coat.
  2. Working in batches, transfer tomatoes and onion to the grill basket, placing tomatoes skin side down, leaving about 1/2 inch between pieces of tomato and onion. Sprinkle some of the basil, oregano, thyme, and garlic over each batch. Sprinkle each batch with some of the salt and pepper.
  3. For a gas or charcoal grill, place grill basket on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill about 5 minutes or until tomato skins begin to brown. Using a metal spatula, transfer grilled vegetables back to the large bowl. Repeat until all tomatoes and onions are grilled.
  4. If desired, remove and discard tomato skins. Working in batches, in a food processor process tomatoes, onions, and herbs until pureed but not smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in Parmesan cheese. To serve at once, transfer mixture to a large saucepan and reheat over low heat, stirring frequently. Or place in an airtight container or freezer bag and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.**
