Summer tomato sauce

-contributed by CSA member Kristine Moser
My kids have me make the following recipe, which I have adapted from something I found in the New York Times a while ago, every week when the tomatoes in our farm share reach their peak! Thought I’d share it with you since most of the ingredients come from your farm! Smile
Summer Tomato Sauce
(a bit thinner than our regular tomato sauce but it is my daughter’s absolute favorite. I eyeball everything so play around with amounts and ingredients)
Fill a blender full of peeled, seeded and chopped tomatoes and then puree them.
Place in a pot and bring to a boil with:
a clove or two (or more if you love) garlic, chopped
some chopped onion ( a good handful)
some chopped green pepper (maybe half or more of a pepper)
a good handful of chopped fresh basil
couple of tbsp of olive oil
a tbsp or two of butter
tsp of sea salt, some freshly ground pepper, a couple of dashes of hot pepper flakes and oregano (can add more as needed as it cooks)
2 tbsp to 6 oz (depending on how many tomatoes you used and how thick you want the sauce) of tomato paste
Once boiling, turn heat to low and let simmer for a couple of hours until reduced and thicker. Place back in a blender or use an immersion blender and blend until smooth. Return to pot to heat through and adjust seasonings. Enjoy over your favorite pasta!
