Roasted Tomato Peach Sauce with Spaghetti

This spaghetti with roasted tomato peach sauce is slightly sweet and a great light summer meal.

There are literally about 25 pounds of tomatoes sitting on my counter right now. The csa gave us free reign of the tomato patch this week and I kind of went crazy. It was basically a nice little warm up for the farmer’s carry we did at crossfit later that night. Who needs kettle bells when you have tomatoes?

First of all, I don’t can, so sauce is out. I’m not slaving away for a full day over my stove making sauce and dealing with boiling and sterilizing jars, it’s just not happening. So as I was putting away some of those 25 pounds of tomatoes in the same drawer in the fridge (if I keep them on the counter, they ripen quicker than I can eat them all!) where about 10 of last week’s peaches remained, an idea struck.

Roast + blend. My kind of sauce.

These tomatoes are like candy and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t eat at least 20 while I was picking them at the farm (quality control). They’re super sweet and seemed like they’d be perfect to roast up with some peaches for a quick sauce.

And since I’m the biggest hypocrite in town, right after I left crossfit yesterday morning talking about how I’d done 2 weeks of strict paleo, I came home and made pasta. Hey, at least it was the Barilla Plus kind with extra protein, right?

Granted, I don’t think it mattered one bit what I ate after this workout as my metabolism probably demolished it all within seconds of entering my body. 200 double unders….gross.

The sauce came out like a cross between traditional tomato sauce and salsa with a sweet undertone from the candy-like tomatoes and peaches. You could just as easily dip chips in it for a snack as toss it with some pasta for a meal. It’s a weird and delicious hybrid.

But it sure as heck beats canning.

Barilla provided me with a few sample boxes of their Barilla Plus pasta and a gift card stipend to create a recipe inspired by the farmer’s market.

    Quite literally a farmer’s carry. Much better than KBs yes. The sauce sounds SO good… I eat Barbaras peach salsa from those big containers straight with a spoon, it’s the best… this reminds me of that!

    What a great combo. I would never think to do that! I also have a ton of tomatoes from a CSA and I have been Goolging like crazy for some new recipes. This one looks great! :-)

    You should totally get into canning with that much supply! I wonder how long dried tomatoes would last? I’m the wrong person to ask but jeez now I want pasta… minus the sauce cuz you know how I am and tomatoes lol. :)

    Our tomato plants, cherry included, are going nuts and we just got a bunch of peaches from our organic grocery delivery. I am going to give this a try on Wednesday night hopefully! Very interesting.

    Just made this. So delicious! Didn’t have shallots, used white onion instead and it worked fine. Also didn’t have cherry tomatoes, used tomatoes on the vine. Scored big points with my man with this recipe!
