Food Friday – No-Cook Tomato Sauce

Pasta with No-Cook Tomato Sauce

Summer 2012 was the summer of tomatoes. Fresh, local, seasonal tomatoes were everywhere and I could not resist.

The no-cook tomato sauce was my go to sauce for lazy Saturday afternoons. I would make a batch, leave it on the kitchen counter to marinate while I walked the seawall.


6 medium heirloom tomatoes, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
10 leaves if basil, finely chopped
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Pasta with No-Cook Tomato Sauce


Combine the tomatoes, garlic, basil and oil in a large glass bowl.
Stir mixture until tomatoes are coated with oil – and garlic and basil are evenly distributed.
Cover and let marinate at room temperature, allowing the flavours to meld, for up to 2hrs.

I love it tossed with hot pasta with a sprinkle of hot pepper strips.

  2. This looks fantastic! We are still getting a lot of beautiful tomatoes in Rome, although they are definitely not heirloom. Can’t wait to try it!
