Fresh tomato sauce


Now is the time I have to eat my yearly ratio of tomato. I only eat tomatoes during the hot summer month when they are ripe and sweet and smell beautifully. One of the favorite summer dishes is a simple tomato sauce.

We are lucky here, we get almost 20 different tomatoes types during the summer. Big ones, tiny ones, red, green, yellow and even burgundy ones.

As I said if you can’t get hold of these perfect summer tomatoes don’t even think of doing a fresh tomato sauce – use tinned ones instead.

2 sliced onions

2 garlic gloves

a handful of capers

10 black olives

all kind of different tomatoes 5-6 depending on the size



fresh basil

dried italian herbs

1/2 buffala mozzarella

Slowly fry the onions and garlic in a good dash of olive oil. Add the capers, tomatoes and the olives.

Season. Let cook for approximately 20 min. Add the fresh basil and if you like some buffalo mozzarella ( this does not look very elegant but tastes pretty good). Mix with the pasta and serve.
