Cut the tomatoes in half and lay face up on a sheetpan prepared with olive oil. Sprinkle the tomatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper. Let dry in a 200 degree oven for 4 to 5 hours. Tomatoes will not dry out completely. Put the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, oregano, basil, and salt in a blender or food processor.
Process until the mixture is rough-textured, not completely smooth
