Smoky Cherry Tomatoes Pasta Sauce Recipe

This is my fifth post on pasta sauces and each one of them has their unique mouth-watering taste. Smoky cherry tomatoes pasta sauce has been prepared by roasting onion, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Roasting gives them a nice smoky flavor which can be tasted in every bite. I have roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic in OTG and onion directly on gas burner. Roasting onion was last minute idea, so just did it on a gas burner. It roasted beautifully on a gas burner as well.

Pasta sauce has been seasoned with black pepper powder, italian herbs seasoning and chilli flakes. Black pepper powder along with roasted vegetables make a heavenly pairing for this pasta sauce.

Enjoy lip-smacking plate of pasta with smoky cherry tomatoes sauce.
