I consider myself a “foodie” and what makes a dish outstandingly delicious for me, is when the taste is truly FRESH.  I enjoy preparing food for myself and my family, but I don’t want to spend  hours cooking…it just leaves me exhausted and without an appetite.

Most people enjoy a simple pasta and tomato sauce, and have great memories (if you are Italian) of Grandma’s Sunday dinners. They always included a marinara sauce (for the pasta) that had to be stirred and simmered for hours to reach the peak of perfection.

I am always looking online for simple recipes that use really fresh ingredients, and can be completed quickly.  When I came across the video that you are about to watch below, Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple astounded me, with a way to make a fantastically fresh, delicious tomato sauce that requires NO COOKING!

All you need is a box grater and ripe, good quality tomatoes. The bonus is that the grater actually saves you from having to peel the tomato.  Watch Justin, add a few ingredients to enhance the taste and consistency, and then pour it on the cooked pasta.

When I watched his preparation, which he does with such simple pleasure that exudes his love of fresh food, I was inspired.  I made it last night for my husband and kids and all I could hear was a resounding Yummmmm!

Let us know how yours turns out! Bon appetite! 🙂

This Guy Rubs A Raw Tomato On Cheese Grater. The Reason Is Brilliant!

What is more delicious than a great tomato sauce on pasta? Traditional homemade sauces that some of us remember our Italian grandma’s cooking for family Sunday dinners, hold great memories, but took many hours simmering and stirring until it arrived at the table. Although such sauces are fantastic, what if you could actually skip all of that cooking and achieve a fantastic home-made sauce to pour over your pasta?

After watching this tantalizing and simple DIY video, in which Food & Wine’s Justin Chapple illustrates how to make a completely fresh tomato sauce that can be ready in minutes, I tried making this. All that I needed was a square grater, some fresh ripe tomatoes, salt, pepper and olive oil.

What’s so amazing about the technique Justin demonstrates, is that it eliminates the need for peeling and dicing the tomatoes. I added some oregano, and fresh basil (as he did) and I have to tell you that my family was blown away at how delicious the sauce was! If you try this, please let us know how yours came out.
