1 28oz tin Roma tomatoes (Italissima peeled Roma tomato)
1 tablespoon tomato paste (unico)
1/4 cup water

1 Pkg of Yves Vegi Ground Round

Peel and quarter the onion, core peppers and cut into large pieces. Chop Celery into chunks. Leave mushrooms whole. Leave peel on garlic cloves.

Spray cooking sheet with Pam. Lay vegi's on tray and add a light spray of Pam. Top with black pepper.  Roast for 25-30 minutes.  Check the garlic cloves at 15 minutes if dark brown remove early.

While vegi's are roasting put tinned tomatoes in a medium pot and puree with immersion blender or masher.  Add dried spices and bay leaf, keep on low until ready for the next step.
