pasta for fourEither regular or gluten-free pasta
Preheat oven to 200 C / 392 F.
Mix tomatoes, garlic cloves, herbs, olive oil in a baking tin. Add pinch of salt and black pepper.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Soak macadamias in boiling water for 30 minutes. This phase is not necessary if you have a powerful high-speed blender.
Rinse and drain macadamias. Squeeze roasted garlic out of the peel.
Blend the macadamias together with the garlic, roasted tomatoes and all the liquid in the baking tin until smooth and creamy. Taste the sauce and if the sauce needs some balancing of flavors, add tomato paste and sugar. Depending on the sweetness and umami flavor of the roasted tomatoes, you might need to adjust the amount of tomato paste and sugar.
Mix sauce with pasta and enjoy warm.
If there's leftover sauce store it well covered in the fridge and use it in soups / sauces as a cream.
