Uncooked Tomato Sauce

Make this only with fresh ripe home grown tomatoes.  If you make this with grocery store tomatoes, make sure they are very ripe, otherwise you will be disappointed.

2 – 3 lbs of ripe tomatoes – peeled, seeded and cut into small pieces

5 -7 cloves of garlic – chopped

A bunch of fresh basil -  torn into pieces or cut into ribbons – do not use dried basil   

˝ cup of good extra virgin olive oil

Put a little salt on the cut up tomatoes and let them drain in a colander for about an hour or so (overnight would be better – it concentrates the tomato taste)

Stir together the tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil in a ceramic bowl and let sit for several hours covered with plastic wrap. 

Add a little salt & pepper to taste

Serve over  spaghetti or linguine

You don’t even need grated cheese -  it is good just this way.
