I tried yesterday’s tomato sauce with some whole wheat pasta. The orangish color of the sauce is a bit misleading–it has sort of a macaroni-and-cheese look. The sauce was pretty good, but it has a slightly sour aftertaste. Next time I’ll add a pinch of sugar and a bit more olive oil. I’ll also use only red tomatoes for a better color. It is amazing how different homemade tomato sauce tastes from the stuff at the grocery store. I love the lightness, freshness, and simplicity of the flavor.
I served it with chard from the CSA sauteed in olive oil with a bit of garlic.
