Raw pasta sauce
This is not really a recipe, but I made my first raw pasta sauce of the summer and it was soooo good. This will be a once-a-week dinner for sure. I just threw tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt, pepper, a dash of sugar, and a splash of olive oil into the food processor (an appliance I love for things like this) for less than 1 minute. Voila. Perfect summer meal with a big green salad.
I had read you should not make sauce like this in a food processor - that it should be chopped or put through a manual food mill. Phooey. Just toss it in and eat it up. Yeah, maybe for company you should do it the "right" way, but for everyday, I don't need superb, just damn good.
