TOMATO SAUCE TONIGHT! Goo-oo-ood!

Tonight’s tomato sauce was goo-ooo-oood!

I made it with 6 tomatoes that were about to go over, 4 big cloves of garlic (from my share), a liberal sprinkling of the organic no-salt seasoning I found at Costco, black pepper, 2 kalamata olives, approximately 1/8 t of agave syrup (I usually use a raisin, but I did not have one), about a T of extra virgin olive oil, a dash of Tabasco, and about 1 T of my vegan Worcestershire sauce.  All went into the food processor, then onto spiralized squash.

Yumm!

TOMATO SAUCE WITH WALNUTS & ZUCCHINI PASTA

TOMATO SAUCE WITH ZUCCHINI PASTA

2 lg zucchinis
4 C tomatoes, chopped
1/4 C extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/8 C onion, finely minced
1 C fresh basil leaves, chopped finely
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 C walnuts, finely chopped

Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently to combine.
Spiralize zucchini and place it on plates.
Spoon sauce on top of zucchini pasta.
Sprinkle walnuts on top.
Serve immediately.

This was a hit at dinner last night. It looked prettier with the sauce piled on the zucchini, but I put it back in the bowl and mixed it all up, thinking that it would be a better way to serve it. That caused problems, because the nuts and tomato mix fell to the bottom, so I ended up scooping it up and trying to distribute it fairly.
