This week we had some Certified Organic Roma’s that were only good for making sauce! Here we go:
6-8 cloves organic garlic, thinly sliced
½ chopped white onion (optional)
2 teaspoons organic dried oregano
Handful dried organic basil (fresh is preferred)
2 teaspoons sea salt
6-7 large Organic Roma tomatoes
¼ cup, 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Fresh ground pepper to taste
In medium pot, boil water. Add tomatoes for roughly 1 minute or until skin begins to peel. Quickly remove and add to ice water. Peel skins and blend tomatoes in a food processor or by hand for a chunkier alternative.
In a large sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat. Once oil begins to shimmer, add onion, garlic, salt, and dried oregano. Stir until flavors are well-blended, but do not let garlic darken. Add in tomatoes and crush down any large piece with a fork. Cook uncovered for 30 minutes to an hour. Once completed, mix into pasta. Add basil stir in chopped basil.
