Since having a child, I’ve found myself eating more foods from my childhood than I ever thought I would. Peanut butter sandwiches now with fig jam. Grilled cheese sandwiches updated with romesco and avocado. And pasta by way of this roasted butter tomato sauce. You’re never too old for your favorite childhood meals.
This roasted butter tomato sauce is a riff on the famous Marcella Hazan recipe that uses canned tomatoes with onion and butter. Since we’re overflowing with tomatoes right now, I decided to slow-roast roma tomatoes in Président butter and garlic. Add a pinch of salt and the melty wedge of Saint Andre cheese for the perfect summer sauce.
Also, you might notice a heavy French presence in this recipe. For this recipe, I’m partnering with the French Ministry of Agriculture to bring a little French culture home. What better way to enjoy dinner than with a little French influence (and french wine- especially this Côté Mas Rosé Aurore). The slight fruit flavor of this rosé is the perfect crisp balance for the pasta.
