I might need to make some to replace pizza sauce:

Tomato Pesto
Recipe courtesy Michael Chiarello, 2007

Chef notes: This is a great sauce for pasta salad because it's delicious at room temperature. In summer, when you can get your hands on vine-ripe tomatoes, you don't even need to peel them. To intensify the flavor, you can add a few oven-dried tomatoes. The pesto keeps several days in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.

Prep Time:20 min

8 servings.


•4 cups peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped tomatoes
•5 cloves minced garlic
•30 large fresh basil leaves
•1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
•1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
•Sea salt, preferably gray salt, and freshly ground black pepper
•1 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Combine the tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper, to taste, in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the cheese and blend briefly just to mix. Transfer to a bowl and adjust the seasoning.
