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!
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
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.
