"Make this because it tastes awesome. What the hot oven does to the deep red San Marzano tomatoes is a wonder to behold, and produces a pasta sauce with some serious depth of flavor. The always entertaining ditalini are a perfect medium for the rich sauce, smoky oregano, and creamy goat cheese." — Chef John

Love, Love, Love, Love this sauce. So easy to make I don't think I'll ever use jarred sauce again! I didn't make the Ditalini, but used this sauce in roasted veggie lasagna, and what else can I say. . . YUM!!!
Made this tonight with fresh tomatoes, just added some extra garlic, and fresh basil and oregano. Great! We'll be making this again
Too much oregano for my taste, and no Basil??
I LOVED this recipe! The sauce is absolutely delicious, however I would recommend doubling the serving size- when I made this for some friends the sauce was literally gone before half of the pasta was even touched. Needless to say everyone loved it
Our home grown San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, herbs and onions made this sauce into absolute perfection. I wish there was some way to preserve the aroma of the roasting vegetables, it is pure heaven. Aside from using fresh tomatoes, we followed the recipe to the letter and will continue to do just that since there is no way to improve on this wonderful sauce.
This tomatoes sauce was delish! Thank you for sharing the recipe:)
Oh. My. Goodness! Really, really, really great sauce. Did I mention this sauce was really great? You must buy the San Marzano tomatoes. I didn't think they would make a difference, but then I thought, why would Chef John lie? He wouldn't!! I quadrupled the recipe for a large office lunch, with a few cups left over to stash in the freezer. I paired this with the World's Fastest Meatballs (also by Chef John), to make meatball subs. I also used this sauce with stuffed mushrooms and it was heaven. I could drink this sauce!
noting else to say but awesome it was a big hit thank you again Chef John once again it is a great recipe I did add some rushed red pepper to it because I am a heat lover just like you
