"Whatever's in the fridge" Tomato Sauce!

Print this post
Time to go grocery shopping! But I managed to cook a pretty good tomato sauce out of all I could find in the kitchen...added some spicy red pepper powder at the end for kick too. Make it your own, see what you have in your fridge! I sweat the onions/garlic/shallot with olive oil on medium, added my fresh herbs, some dry basil/oregano, a wee salt and pepper, stirred in diced celery, then some white wine, stirred again, added my crushed tomatoes and simmered! Then after I took it off the heat and it cooled a bit, I took my hand blender and crushed everything to make it more smooth, but not totally puréed. Taste a few times as it's back over the heat and add salt and pepper to taste.

I heart this idea. In fact, grabbing whatever's in the back of the fridge and seeing what I can make out of it is one of my fav ways to cook! Brava.

Glad you're into it too! It's pretty a home version of Take Home Chef, haha!
