    I Remember Nonna 9 (marinated tomato sauce)

    ...perfect for warm summer days: toss everything together and let the tomatoes marinate at room temperature for a couple of hours. Diners heap the sauce onto their linguine at the table. Very tasty!

    What you need:

    a) 8 medium ripe tomatoes chopped and drained in a colander
    b) 2-3 cloves garlic minced
    c) teaspoon salt
    d) 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    e) zest of one lemon
    f) juice of one lemon
    g) 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    h) 1/2 cup EVOO
    i) 4 tablespoons unchopped basil
    j) 3 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
    k) 1 tablespoon capers
    l) 8-10 rinsed kalamata olives (sliced)
    m) 2 red chilis slit lengthwise

    What you do:

    Mix everything together in a large bowl and cover. Let tomatoes marinate for at least 2 hours at room temperature. Diners scoop sauce onto bowls of linguine and add Parmesan to taste. Excellent.

    NB: you may have to shake the colander vigorously several times to remove as much of the tomato liquid as possible.

    Is it really a sauce or more of a salad?

    ......it's an uncooked sauce: Nonna made a number of them during the summer using whatever fresh produce was available...I may soon offer her shredded (and uncooked) zucchini sauce...a family favorite...

    I believe you posted that one time before (but not under this I remember Nona series) because I had a go at making it that next day.

    I think I would prefer this with hot crusty bread than with pasta. Looks good, all the same. Thanks for the ideas.

    Another nice recipe. I’ll be trying this one when my home grown tomatoes ripen up.

    I did the marinated bell peppers recipe. So good.

    I am going to the nursery tomorrow to buy my soil, manure and fertilizer here in Washington it never used to get this warm so early. I am planting earlier than I ever have because of global warming.

    ^ It’s incredible how warm this past winter was. Plants that would normally die in the cold winter weather survived. Surprised by heirloom tomatoes which sprang up from seed are knee high already.

    Well that is even more terrifying as you are far more south than I am. We still get our winters for now, but we never had 80f days when I was a kid in May. We have two coming tomorrow. This has been happening for the last three or four years. Record temps getting shattered the very next year.

    Some slight substitutions for mine.

    Fettucini rather than linguini, balsamic vinegar rather than red wine vinegar and normal parsley, instead of italian parsley. I only used half a lemon juice and did not add any chilli as the little ones were eating also.

    ...substitutions add imagination to the recipe and personalize the dining experience...
