The recipe makes a sweet tomato sauce. You can serve it on whatever type of pasta you like. I happened to choose quinoa because I had some already made and because it adds some protein to an otherwise vegetarian meal. I grated some Parmesan cheese on top - not really necessary, but it's a nice touch. Enjoy the bounties of your garden (or farmers' market)!
Tomato Sauce (Salsa di Pomodoro)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 small onion, chopped
4 large tomatoes
1/3 cup red wine
salt to taste
coarse black pepper to taste
1 bunch fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces
1 Tbsp sugar
Heat olive oil in a 3 quart pot (or larger if you increase the recipe). Stir in garlic and onion and cook over medium heat until they begin to soften. Do not let brown.
Lower heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
Bring sauce to a boil, then lower heat to simmer. Cover pot and cook 20 minutes.
Serve over quinoa, pasta, or freeze for later!
