Tomatoes are abundant these days and basil grows in a pot on my window sill. For some more basil, the neighbouring market sells them cheap at 5 Rs for a small bunch. My kitchen never goes without garlic. So what else is there to a good jar of marinara sauce? Nothing actually.
I used to love the show Everyday Italian. Giada’s simple style and usage of a variety of vegetables kept me hooked to her show. I modified her recipe to suit the availability of ingredients here. 1 kg of tomatoes yielded two jars of sauce. Kept refrigerated, it is now a breeze to dish out my hubby’s favourite dinner of spaghetti in tomato sauce.
