      Drizzle 1 tbsp of the olive oil over the tomatoes. Then sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt. Now they are ready to roast.

      Cook the shallot gently in the remaining oil for 8 minutes, or until soft. Stir in the garlic and cook for another minute. Add tomato ketchup, paste, sauce, and roasted tomatoes. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Blend before you strain.
