Recipe: Pasta with Roasted Tomato Sauce

The tomato bumper crop should continue throughout August.  In addition to being delicious, tomatoes are a wonderful source of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, and antioxidants.  Instead of topping your pasta with store-bought pasta sauce, try roasting tomatoes from the Market for a tasty alternative.  Don’t skip the fresh herbs that are also readily available from several vendors.  Feel free to add other vegetables you might find at the market, including peppers, onion, and eggplant.
