It has been forever since I posted!
Work got busy.
We were travelling a bit.
And, we’ve been apartment hunting.
Which is incredibly time consuming.
Which has meant that I’ve been making really fast dinners.
And totally forgetting to take any pictures.
But this was so delicious and so easy that despite the lack of photos, I think you’ll still love it.
Three ingredient pasta sauce:
- cherry tomatoes
- Red Wine
That’s it. And whatever kind of pasta you want to toss it with.
I was in a rush at the store and trying to grab a few things and get out when I saw this gorgeous carton of multicolor cherry tomatoes for $1.99. The price! The beautiful tomatoes! I had to do something with them.
So i brought them home, sliced them in half and then rummaged in the fridge.
We had 4 pieces of bacon left over from when we had BLTs. So I diced up the bacon and fried it in a pot.
When it was cooked, i tossed the halved tomatoes into the pot with the bacon and let them cook down in the bacon fat. You can drain some of the fat off, but really, why?
Stir occasionally. The tomatoes will start to burst open and the juices will mix with the bacon.
I wanted a little more liquid so I looked around and grabbed the open bottle of red wine on the counter.
A few glugs, lowered the heat and let the pot simmer.
The wine added a richness that made it taste like the sauce had been cooking all day. Reality:20 minutes.
Boil water, cook whatever kind of pasta you want and toss with the sauce.
Don’t be afraid to plan a meal around one ingredient that just looks incredible in the store. Trust your senses. If it smells good and lookgs good, it’s probably in season and probably will taste its best.
