Tried this sauce recipe. Big toaster oven (like as big as they go). Dish was a bit smaller, and deeper. The oven only goes to 400, yet convection. Took twice as long--2.5 hours. Well, I had to check it 5 times ish. Was it good? Ya. Was it worth 2.5 hours, and cleaning a heavily blackened casserole dish?--the jury is still deliberating. I think reg tomato sauce with chopped roasted veg like red pepper, onion, and mushroom (45 min @375) would work better, faster, easier, and much less cleaning. Just my 2 cents.

Just so we're clear, I mean roast the veg, in biggish chunks (or whole for small things), and then chop after roasting to add it to the sauce...

And probably 1/3 sauce, 2/3 chopped roasted veg. or 1/2 and 1/2 if you must...
