fresh summertime tomato sauce

I love the combination of red, green and white ingredients together!

First of all, please ignore two things: This tomato sauce recipe is for fresh sauce, not cooked, but I warmed mine in a pan on the stove. Second: If you look close, you can see that I didn't use basil. I didn't have any, but I did have parsley in the fridge. So...

This is a fabulous recipe uncooked or gently cooked. As in just warmed up. Which is what I did here.

Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce 

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
3 medium chopped ripe tomatoes1/4 cup chopped coarsely, fresh basil1 teaspoon salt

Stir together everything in a medium bowl. Let sit at room temperature for a bit to blend flavors. Serve over your favorite pasta.

After I cooked it gently. Just enough to warm it up. I like to add a few twists of pepper.


  1. Ooh, garlicky- That looks amazing. And I *love* your spoon!

  2. It looks scrumptious...but what I really like is that cool looking spoon!

  4. Thanks j. and Janet! I think I acquired the spoon somewhere traveling... I'm a sucker for an unusual wooden utensil.

    Dana, that is a great link, thank you! And just in time to learn about how to deal with the weeds growing in the cracks of my driveway.


I appreciate your visit and taking the time to write! Peace and Love!
