Well, I was under the impression this blog be about all handmade THINGS until I made some tomato sauce last night & everything on the cutting board looked so fresh, ripe & good- This is so easy I don’t even think it’s a real recipe. I do love to cook so there may be recipes posted now & again when I trip over something worth repeating.
Basically, get a ton of ripe tomatoes, mince up about 2-3 cloves of garlic. Saute garlic in about 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil until soft. Do not burn! Add all your tomatoes & just let it cook down until it doesn’t look so watery. About 45 minutes. Add a good pinch of sea salt. Toss it all in the blender until smooth. Strain out the skin & seed bits. If it still looks thin just simmer it on the stove again to thicken it up. Don’t forget to stir it once in a while. That’s it. Oh, & rip some basil & grate some fresh Parmesan for the top when you put it over pasta. Easy Peasy.
After taking the pictures of all those good tomatoes I ended up making something anyway.
