Simple tomato sauce

The madame loves to eat when we eat.

I’m making pasta with tomato sauce and mozzarella many many times a month. While the pasta is boiling I make a quick tomato sauce with these ingredients:

  • Canned tomatos (love Mutti’s or Oro’s peeled ones, not the crushed ones)
  • Garlic
  • Fresh red pepper (the spicier the better)
  • A bit of crème fraîche
  • Salt & black pepper

Sometimes some dried oregano or thyme or fresh basil.

Topping it with olive oil, mozzarella and more black pepper. Kalamata olives are tasty too, but not a thing I eat with this dish often.

A bonus picture of Pia. Got her a moving fish toy this weekend but she’s all like What do you think of me?!

    that looks delicious. I am obsessing over thin slices of butternut squash added to pasta sauce. and discovered a faux parmesan made from walnuts, nooch and miso that is super tasty. We are lactose intolerant here. your cat is very discerning it seems, or maybe just averse to fish that do not smell of fish?

      That faux parmesan sounds excellent!
      Got her some real fish today, very popular, a lot of meowing.
