Spicy Tomato Sauce

Here's a really simple tomato based sauce that's good for pasta, rice, salad, etc. It's a little spicy, but nothing crazy. It's also really easy and tastes awesome. 1 lb roma tomatoes 2-3 chipotles and 2-3 tbls adobo sauce 1/3 cup chopped raw celery 1 tsp olive oil 3 cloves garlic basil, salt, pepper to taste On a baking sheet roast the tomatoes whole in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. The tomatoes take on a really deep flavor from a few minutes in the oven. Roughly chop and add tomatoes to a blender. You may have to add them in batches to avoid making a mess. Add garlic, chipotles, adobo sauce and oil. Puree. Add celery, spices and remaining tomatoes and buzz again. Taste and adjust seasoning. Keeping in mind the flavors will intensify after a few hours to rest and marry. It'll be very liquidy at first, but will thicken up nicely after a rest in fridge. Enjoy over anything with a neutral flavor. Potatoes, salad, pasta, rice, veggies, beans. Y
