Tastes of summer


It's September and I'm talking about 'summer'. But the long weekend on Bowen has been lovely.

This is a fresh tomato sauce that we're going to eat with radiatore. Nice and simple and so delicious with the fresh picked tomatoes.

2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup minced onions
2/3 cup finely diced zucchini
1 clove minced fresh garlic
1 fresh bay leaf
4 cups diced fresh tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
Salt and pepper

Melt butter and olive oil and add onions, garlic, zucchini and basil. Sauté on low until onions are tender. Add diced tomatoes and turn up heat until bubbling, then reduce to low simmer, stirring in basil. Stir occasionally and cook until reduced.
