This recipe is fabulous for several reasons…1. No cooking required 2. Fresh ingredients (tomatoes and basil straight from my garden!) 3. It’s delicious. 4. It’s healthy 5. No cooking required. Oh yeah, I said that already. However, as hot as it’s been, it is worth repeating!
This is another great recipe from ! She has some great step-by-step photos. This recipe is super simple…all you have to do is chop up your ingredients, let it sit, give it a stir and …. DONE.
Fresh Tomato and Basil Sauce
10 garden tomatoes various sizes
1 garlic clove
large handful of basil
salt and pepper to taste
Dice tomatoes and garlic, add to a large bowl, julienne basil, salt and pepper to taste, mix well. Then drizzle olive oil on top until it covers all the tomatoes about 1/4 inch, cover and let sit in room temperature 2-3 hours before serving (or longer…mine sat for 4 hours or more the first time I made it). Cook pasta al dente, mix the fresh sauce and add on top of pasta (or whatever you like – spaghetti squash, zucchini, etc)
