I got this cookbook at a yard sale a couple years ago.
I've tried several recipes and have my eye on several more, but I'd never tried the Special Tomato Sauce.
Special Tomato Sauce
1 2/3 lb tomatoes, fresh or canned, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
5 T olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
a few leaves fresh basil or a small pinch dried oregano
1. Place all the ingredients in a medium heavy saucepan and simmer together for 30 minutes.
2. Puree the sauce in a food processor, or press through a sieve.
3. Return the sauce to the pan, correct the seasoning and simmer again for about 15 minutes.
This sauce may be spooned into freezer bags and frozen until required. Allow to thaw to room temperature before re-heating.
I put more carrot in than called for (I have to sneak those veggies to the kids somehow!) and used a large onion rather than medium. I can't wait till our garden is going later this summer. It would be so good with fresh ingredients. Or different ingredients. Zucchini? Peppers?
