I decided the summer needed a proper send off with some beyond amazing, fresh tomato, spaghetti sauce! I started with lots of roma tomatoes which I seeded and chopped. I didn't peel them as I have no shame in admitting that I'm a lazy chef, or as I like to say, a "smart and easy" cooking chef, or "smeazy" for short.
I then sauteed fresh minced garlic, white onion, and some seeded fresno peppers in some homemade basil garlic oil (I don't even know what got into me that day!). I then added the diced romas, and some italian herbs and seasonings and let it simmer in all its goodness for around three heavenly smelling hours. It was a little chunky at the end; and there's definitely not that anything wrong about being a little chunky (!!); but I was looking for a thinner sauce this time around, so I whipped out my handy emulsion blender and pureed it a little in the pot.
**Note: Have the lid handy and remove pot from heat as you do this, or you will give yourself a hot tomato sauce facial; which may or may not be what you were expecting...Who knows, you may be a better multi tasker than me!
