I love simple yummy recipes like this one. This recipe is adapted from the wonderful book, The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters. I would highly recommend this book for anyone. If you are just learning to cook, this will teach you the basics of real food. If you are an experienced cook this book will re-introduce you to the joys of simple real food.
3 slices bacon, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 large onion, diced
6 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped, or 2- 15 oz cans whole tomatoes, drained and chopped (reserve the juice)
In a heavy pan over medium heat saute the bacon in the olive oil until the meat is nice and browned. Remove the meat and set aside. Add the onions to the bacon/olive oil and cook until soft-about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook about 10 minutes, adding the tomato juice if it becomes too dry. Taste for salt.
That’s it! How simple is that. Since Thanksgiving was only 4 days ago, I still had leftover turkey, so I diced about a cup of it and tossed it in. I served this over whole wheat pasta with some roasted Brussel’s sprouts.
