SAUCE! part 1: No-Cook Tomato Sauce

It would seem a grievous error for the very first Saucy Tomato blog post to not be about, well, SAUCE!  And today, you will get an Official Blog Launch 2-for-1 Special!  I’ll share a nifty trick for creating a thick and hearty tomato sauce in my next post, but for now let’s start with something that’s easy, yummy, and doesn’t even require a stove top…


No-Cook Tomato Sauce

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10 basil leaves, cut in ribbons
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar (opt)

Mix tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, and vinegar (opt) in a bowl.  Marinate for 3-4 hours. Add salt and pepper and smash all ingredients together with a fork.  Serve over warm pasta, topped with Parmesan or goat cheese and extra basil leaf ribbons.
