- Heat oven to 180C and arrange the half tomatoes on an oven tray.
- Sprinkle the garlic over the top, followed by the thyme and rosemary, which you have crushed lightly in your hands. Finish with a sprinkling of salt.
- Roast for 20 minutes or until golden. Remove the herbs and carefully transfer tomatoes to a blender. Add the olive oil and puree till smooth. Fresh basil and parsley can be added while blending for a more fragrant sauce.
- Bottle the sauce in sterilised jars to keep for months.
