Two recipes in three days! I was afraid she was going to have to change the blog name to Grandma Pat Rants! Thanks for your support.
I came across this recipe and decided that it was one of those I needed in my life in order for my life to be complete. I used to say that about men I’d meet but I got over that phase a few decades ago. Thank you, Jesus!
whole peeled tomatoes, 28 ounces, drained, reserve juice
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 t red wine or apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 t dried oregano
1 t dried basil
Put everything into a blender and process for 30 seconds. Pour the concoction into a 2-cup liquid measuring cup and add enough reserved juice to make 2 cups. S&P to taste.
It’s done! Now you have the rest of the day to play computer games!
Good on pizza or other Italian configurations. I used mine on zucchini noodles. That’s zucchini cut with a spiral cutter to resemble noodles. I skipped the cheese because my kitchen remodel diet is going so well and I don’t want to screw it up, or end a sentence with a preposition. I did add some roasted tofu cut into delightful squares and broccoli on the side.
This sauce will be OK in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer for about a month. Label and date it! We know how that goes. Husband’s critique of the dish? “That was really tasty!” Yes, he said it with an exclamation point.
