No-Cook Tomato Sauce

Ingredients

6 medium-sized heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped

4 large garlic cloves, finely minced

10 leaves basil, cut into ribbons (reserve a little for garnish)

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish (optional)

Directions

1Place tomatoes, garlic, basil, and olive oil into a large serving bowl. Stir mixture until all tomatoes are coated with oil and garlic is evenly distributed throughout the sauce.

2 Cover the bowl and let everything marinate for about four hours on the counter at room temperature. Add salt and pepper to taste. The tomatoes will release their juices and flavors will meld. If you can't wait the full four hours, it's still tasty right out of the mixing bowl!

3 Serve over warm pasta or bread, with more fresh basil and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
