Fresh tomato/basil sauce – 7/26/17

Spaghetti with fresh tomato/basil sauce

I made this sauce with three pounds of our large supply of tomatoes. I blanched and peeled the tomatoes but did not de-seed them. Here is my process –

Blanch, peel, and chop tomatoes

Saute 1/2 onion, 1/2 tsp. pepper flakes, and 2 cloves garlic in some olive oil

Add tomatoes and two large basil leaves

Use potato masher to crush tomatoes while simmering for half an hour

salt and pepper to taste

cook pasta

Remove spent basil leaves and garnish dish with fresh basil
