Yes, I have way too many tomatoes coming ripe in the garden. That is what happens when you plant 8 tomato plants, have 2 volunteers, and there are only 2 people in your home. Yeah....
So- this is super simple, and oh so tasty.
In 1 TBS olive oil, saute 1 medium chopped red onion, 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 large green pepper, until soft. To this, add 8 cups roughly chopped fresh tomatoes, and reduce heat to simmer. After one hour, add 1 TBS each fresh basil, parsley, and thyme, and sea salt to taste. Stir occasionally, continuing to simmer for another hour. Use a hand held blender and puree. Serve with a dollop of greek yogurt, and/or cheese if desired.
This will also work well as a sauce over chicken or pork, to bake, covered with foil, in the oven.
