If you’ve been following me on twitter today, you know that I’m officially on vacation!! Of course, this is roughly the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me.* But, like all things, there is a downside. This week my CSA share, which is normally shared with R., is all mine. And it’s full of tomatoes and corn and peppers and tons of other things that we can’t possibly eat all of before our trip.
*Note to the future offspring: that was hyperbole.
So, to use up a large chunk of the tomatoes, which, incidentally have been fabulous this year, I made fresh tomato sauce. I used a recipe that was included with the CSA this week. It’s really simple: Tomatoes, Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, and Basil. I added some balsamic vinegar and food processed it all until smooth. After the sauce is complete, just add to some hot pasta and top with some Parmesan.
Lunch today. I also added a tofurkey Italian sausage.
This is basically a perfect summer meal, light, fast, and full of the taste of summer. Fabulous!
