Directions:
Toss tomatoes, bell peppers, garlic, and basil generously with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in 400 oven for 40 minutes until tomatoes and peppers have broken down and edges are browned.

Let peppers cool down enough to remove skins. Puree peppers and tomatoes in blender, or use an immersion blender in stock pot. Mix in heavy cream and heat through.

Sauce will be thick. If you desire a thinner sauce, add vegetable or chicken broth until desired consistency. Serve over pasta of your choosing.
