There is nothing better than a fresh tomato sauce, and this week you are getting tomatoes and basil in your CSA share. You could make this!
No long slow cooking needed when the tomatoes are this fresh. This is so simple and quick.
You only need a few ingredients.
A couple of beautiful tomatoes
An onion, shallot, or leek. My onion was kind of yucky on one side so I used 1/2 an onion
Some garlic, olive oil, and a handful of basil.
Cut up your vegetables
Add them to a hot pan in this order;
Cook the onions until they are soft then add the garlic. The garlic can get bitter if you add it with the onions.
When the onions are soft add the tomatoes
Cook that down until the tomatoes collapse.
Toss in a handful of basil.
This is great on polenta and grilled vegetables. I’ll use about 1/2 of this for some eggplant rolls. That is a separate blog.
Enjoy the tomatoes this week!
