I’ve been in a saucy mood lately. You know, in the mood to make sauce! Since our garden is bursting with tomatoes it only made sense to make a fresh marinara. This means it’s time for another installment of our ‘garden-to-table’ feature!
I gathered Roma tomatoes for a few days and ended up with somewhere between 35 and 40 fruits. I picked some fresh basil, set aside a big onion, fresh garlic, sugar, salt, pepper and oregano. At the end I also add some red wine and tomato paste (not pictured).
… and the salt and pepper. Stir until combined and simmer for about 2 hours. Then add a 6-ounce can of tomato paste and about 1/2 cup red wine as needed to thin the sauce.
