Let the sun do all the cooking. This Pond Mountain Inn favorite is prepared by our host Kay. Once the ingredients have sunbathed you’ll love how the ingredients pair so well together with such robust flavor.
Fresh Tomato Sun Sauce Recipe
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + Sunbathing
YIELD: 4 -6 servings
2 1/2 pounds Fresh Ripe Plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
¼ cup Julienne cut Sun-Dried tomatoes with Italian Herbs (Bella Sun Luci*)
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese
¼ cup minced fresh Italian Parsley
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Spaghetti or Angel Hair pasta
Grated Parmesan cheese
Mix tomatoes together in a large glass bowl (cover) or wide-mouth Mason jar along with sun dried tomatoes, parsley, oil, grated Parmesan cheese and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss well and let the sun do the work until juices are released from the tomatoes – approximately 2-3 hours. Stir occasionally.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente. Drain pasta, and toss into a serving bowl with the Sun Sauce. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with grated cheese.
* If Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes are not available in your area please use your local favorite sun dried tomatoes packed in oil.
