Roasted Tomato and Onion Sauce is made by roasting ripe summer tomatoes and onions creating a delicious sauce for pasta, soups and more.
Ball was kind enough to send me a freshTECH HarvestPro Sauce Maker for review and recipe development purposes.
I have enjoyed our garden so much this year. The garden fresh tomatoes right off of the vine are just incredible.
We have been getting six or eight a week and they are really just starting to take off. I picked up a few from the local farmers market to make this Roasted Tomato and Onion Sauce.

I remember my mom canning tomato juice when I was a little kid. One morning, she was working so hard in the kitchen. I remember the jars and the tomatoes and bowls of other ingredients.
I proceeded with my ritual of having a bowl of cereal as soon as my feet hit the floor. I spotted the big bowl of sugar and spooned a bunch over my cereal, poured the milk and plopped down at the kitchen table to eat.
I think I literally spit my cereal out and had quite a fit. I had spooned a ton of salt over my cereal and was so mad that mom didn’t warn me. She just laughed and shook her head at me.
A few years ago my mom introduced me to roasted tomatoes and I’m hooked on her Roasted Tomato Soup. It is my favorite!
I decided to use that same method for an all- purpose tomato sauce. I roasted garden fresh tomatoes and onions. I used the freshTECH HarvestPro Sauce Maker to create the most incredible sauce and it was so easy!
This week has been a doozy and I didn’t have a lot of extra time. So I just made a small batch to test out the freshTECH HarvestPro Sauce Maker.
I was so impressed! It was so easy to use and I was so surprised how fast it worked. The best part was how easy it is to cleanup! Seriously easy.
I will be using it to make homemade salsa, fruit spreads and lots of tomato sauce this summer! I can’t wait to show it to my mom, I know she will have some great ideas too. It will also make baby food! How handy is that?
