No more bending your spaghetti to get it all in the boiling water. The pan's wide oval shape takes up minimal space when the stovetop is crowded. The handles have nonslip, heat-resistant silicone grips, and a helper handle on this pot makes draining and carrying much easier.
Roasted Plum Tomatoes
Roasted Tomato Sauce
Roasted tomato sauce has a concentrated, deep tomato flavor.  Fresh plum tomatoes are cut in half, lightly seasoned, and roasted in the oven for less than an hour.

Roasted Tomato Sauce Recipe  >>
Roasting garlic mellows its sharp flavor and lends it  a sweet, caramelized taste.  Stir it into sauces or salad dressings, spread it on sandwiches, or add it to dips or pizza.
1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Trim off the top quarter of a head of garlic to expose the cloves.

3. Place the garlic head on a square of aluminum foil.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Wrap the foil to enclose the garlic.

4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.

5.  To extract the roasted cloves, grab the bottom of the head and gently squeeze until the cloves pop out. They should be soft and golden brown.

6. Roasted garlic cloves may be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
