Tomatoes! And what to do with them - Part One. (Or was it Part Two? Or Four? Or?)

One simple tomatoe sauce recipe. Take a bunch of tomatoes and a 9x13 roasting dish. Cut and slice the tomatoes into approximate quarters. Don't peel. Fill the dish with one layer of cut tomatoes and add 25 cloves of garlic, scattering them across the top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle the dish with olive oil. Now place in a 450 oven for twenty minutes. Remove from oven and put the roasted contents of the dish into a food processor. Chunky or smooth? You decide. I like the smooth and it tastes great. The roasting softens the flavor of the garlic and intensifies the flavor of the tomatoes.
