Old/New Italian Tomato Sauce
from Maria Paola Segurini - Florence, Italy

It's a traditional tomato sauce, but quicker.
Serves 3.

  • 3 medium size round tomatoes (ripe)
  • 1 clove garlic -or- 1 small onion
  • salt/pepper
  • one pinch oregano
Slice tomatoes (if you want them peeled boil some water,
plunge them in for 3 minutes, take them out and peel).

In a microvawe bowl, pour a teaspoonful of olive oil, 1 layer tomatoes, chopped garlic , oregano salt and pepper,
then another layer with the same procedure.

Nuke 6 minutes at maximum heat (no grill)

Pour on pasta or couscous.

In Italy we use either garlic/oregano or onion/basil tomato sauces.
Pepper can be replaced with other non aromatic hot spices.
