Want to know what to do when you are overloaded with home grown tomatoes and basil?
You make Grammy's (my Grandma) sauce and freeze it! It is delish and super low in calories. Our freezer always has some sauce in it, makes a great fast, healthy dinner.
Saute a white onion and a clove of garlic in a splash of olive oil. Add 8 or so diced tomatoes, a handful of minced basil, and a dash of salt and let simmer for about 30 minutes. You can also make this with a can of diced tomatoes and dried basil, but why if your garden is anything like ours? I have even been making it with lemon boy tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. Any variety works just fine. Because this is a delicate sauce, I prefer it served with angel hair pasta and a bit of fresh parm.
