|Served over polenta. Crazy tasty.|
When you've got farm fresh tomatoes and are looking for a quick easy no-cook tomato sauce, look here. A jar of capers lives in my fridge, and if I put up enough, I have a cube or two of pesto left in the freezer until my basil gets going in the summer. So when I get ripe tomatoes, I'm good to go.
This was fast, easy, and tasty. Try it!
|This is it. I did not forget anything! Some of the tomatoes look like plums. Love my CSA!|

Fast Fresh Tomato Sauce4 medium tomatoes
1 generous Tablespoon pesto (it's probably more like 1 1/2 to 2 Tablespoons)
1 Tablespoon capers
Chop the tomatoes into a small dice. Give the tops to your composting pigs (or compost them, or chop them up as well--I'm talking about the tomatoes, not the pigs). Place tomatoes and any accumulated juice in a bowl. Add pesto (straight from freezer is fine!) and capers. Stir. Let sit on the counter while you take the kids to the dentist, or for at least an hour. Serve over polenta, or eat straight from the bowl.
This sauce is joining the crowd at What's Cookin' Wednesday, the Wednesday Fresh Foods Link Up, What's In The Box, the From The Farm Blog Hop, the Clever Chicks Blog Hop, Tasty Tuesdays, Food on Friday, and Mostly Homemade Mondays.
NOTE: Whatever you do, don't use more tomatoes without using additional pesto and capers, and don't stick your immersion blender into it because your daughter doesn't like the idea of capers or chunks in her tomato sauce. It will turn out yucky. Trust me. Let her eat something else and enjoy this sauce as above. Not below.
