Fresh Tomato Sauce

Standard

Summer is the perfect time to make this sauce – when the tomatoes are at their freshest and sweetest! I make marinara sauce to store away with fresh tomatoes, but this is a good way to savor whole fresh tomatoes on the spot!

Ingredients:

3 fresh ripe tomatoes, cut into small pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 c chicken broth

Salt & pepper

Fresh basil to taste

Spaghetti noodles (I use Ancient Grains – these are the only integral noodles that I like)

Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions:

Heat some olive oil in a saucepan. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.

Add the fresh tomatoes. Mix them up a bit. Add the broth and seasonings, as well as the basil. Boil until the tomatoes have broken down. Adjust the seasonings to taste.

Pour over cooked spaghetti. Top with parmesan cheese.
