I simply can't resist trying this recipe posted by boo_licous over at Masak-masak sometime back. She sang praises over this particular tomato sauce by Marcella Hazan and when I looked at the ingredients, wow... so few and so simple to resist especially when I had left a comment that I have one can of tomatoes sitting in my larder.
With just one can of Italian plum tomatoes, I halved the recipe and managed to get 2 portions of sauce for my boiboi's meal. For one portion, I chucked in diced potatoes and carrots, plus some chopped spinach. Pour the sauce over pasta and shave some parmesan cheese on top.
For the subsequent portion, I freeze the sauce for boiboi's dinner the next day. I boiled some carrot and potato strips to soften and cook them first before adding to the heated sauce. Top pasta with parmesan shaves.
Of course boiboi ate his dinner with gusto. The sauce is superb with a hint of butter taste and surprisingly good without any herbs added.
I still have a bit of sauce on hand, too little for another portion of pasta dinner. Hence, I slatter the sauce over a piece of toast. Next, layer with julienned carrots and cucumber before topping with some canned tuna salad. Voila, a quick and delicious lunch for the mummy!
Get the recipe here. Thanks boo_licious for sharing this jewel.
