The biggest problem in my marriage . . not to air our dirty laundry . . but this is a huge problem . . except when there are fresh Roma tomatoes in the garden. Our most serious problem: Vince loves spaghetti with red sauce and I do not like red sauce. Do not like it at all! Growing up, his family had spaghetti every Sunday. We do that pretty often . . almost every Sunday . . sometimes. He loves the thick red sauce with all the spices . . including oregano . . which I also don’t like!
Our problems were solved when I came across this recipe. Oh, how I love this spaghetti and Vince loves it too.
This is the easiest recipe but it does require about 25 perfectly ripe Roma tomatoes . . the perfectly perfect tomatoes that I can never buy in the grocery store and can only get out of my garden. Canned tomatoes will work but not as perfectly perfect as fresh picked Romas . . oh, this is such a good recipe.
The recipe calls for straining the oil and adding it to the sauce but we drizzle the oil over our spaghetti in the boil and stir it up. We also use the oil for bread dipping.
It was another meatless dinner and it was just right on a hot summer evening.
