Pomodoro Sauce for EdPosted: October 10, 2021
Two big things I got from my father are my love of gardening and cooking. My mother has never cared about cooking or eating so as soon as I could reach the stove my father had me cooking. I actually was cooking eggs for myself before my parents even knew, because they would be asleep late on weekends and I had things to do and places to go. Thankfully I never burned the house down.
My Dad loved to cook, but was a recipe follower, until he mastered something. Quite the opposite from me as a cook. Still I am sure I never would have become the cook I am without his influence, especially in taking me all over the world to taste different foods in their home cultures.
As my garden is still producing tomatoes today I picked a basket full and made a Pomodoro sauce my Dad would appreciate as one we used to eat in Italy on family trips to his favorite Amalfi coast.
3 medium Onions- peeled and quartered
12-14 ripe Roma and Campari tomatoes quartered
6 cloves of garlic peeled
3 T. Olive oil
1 T. Balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 t. Basil, dry
1 t. Marjoram
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 375°
Place everything on a big sheet pan mixed together.
Cook at least 45 minutes until the onions are starting to brown.
Let cool slightly and pour everything on pan into a blender and blend just until not chunky.
