This is our Pizza Garden. It has tomatoes, oregano, basil, parsley and chives. Here is our recipe for a yummy homemade tomato sauce.
1. Cut the stem out of each tomato and cut an X on the bottom. Put the tomatoes in boiling water until their skin starts to peel. Plunge tomatoes into bowl of ice water until cool enough to touch. Remove skins and squeeze tomatoes to remove seeds. (Caution! Do not wear a white shirt during this operation!) Blend tomatoes until smooth.
2. In a large Dutch oven, sauté garlic and onion in olive oil. Pour in blended tomatoes. Add basil, Italian seasoning and wine. Bring to a boil, then turn to low, simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes or until thick. Serve with pasta or as pizza sauce.
