The comments in this made me laugh so hard, Even I know how to roast tomatoes and I'm a joke in the kitchen! Anyway you can BUY canned roasted tomatoes if you don't have the time and this recipe was AMAZING!

Simple and easy! I used a can of diced tomatoes because I didn't have fresh ones, and added a little diced onion. Tasty!

WHAT? How do you roast tomatoes? Maybe that should be included in the recipe so people know how to do it. I put everything in the pan at the same time...sure hope it works out!! Specify next time that you have to put the tomatoes and garlic in something else before it gets added to the pan.

I didn't have any regular tomatoes so I substituted Italian style stewed tomatoes and wow!! This recipe is excellent, this will become a weekly meal!!!!

I loved it and my husband, who is extremely picky, said this is awesome! I did omit the wine.
