Summer vegetables in the Temecula Valley are INSANE!!! I received sweet peppers, onions and these gorgeous yellow Roma’s in my CSA box and I just had to make something simple and amazing! This sauce is so versatile you can eat it alone like a soup, toss it with pasta, or top a fried egg with it like I did!
2 pounds Roma tomatoes, I used yellow you can use red, chopped
1 pound sweet peppers, stems removed and chopped
2 onions, diced
4-6 garlic, rough chopped
1/2 cup basil
Salt and pepper to taste
– Sauté onions, garlic and peppers with about 4-6 tablespoons olive oil until peppers and onions caramelize, about 30 minutes
– Add the tomatoes and oregano, cook another 10-15 minutes
– Allow to cool a bit and blend with basil until smooth
– Heat a little bit of olive oil and add the blended sauce, salt and pepper at this point and cook on low for another 10-15 minutes
I am excited to hear what you think!
