A simple and easy tomato sauce made from cherry tomatoes…accompanies anything from pizza to flatbread to bruschetta.
Anymore, I’m a big fan of the ‘simple’.
Simple house, simple clothing, simple food, simple make-up…
During a rare moment to myself, I was perusing YouTube the other day, looking up videos on how to create various make-up looks, many of which were titled something like ‘my simple everyday routine’.
Though the purveyors of these videos always ended up looking pretty and polished, I have to say that I didn’t consider foundation, blush, and various contouring tricks ‘simple’ make-up.
Perhaps I’ve just been out of the game for so long?
My make-up routine on some days (particularly when the hubs is working, because…who cares?) literally involves a swipe of mascara and a dab of lip gloss. Not saying I look my best, but it sure is simple.
Another ‘simple’ in my life is food.
Though I still like to experiment with different flavor combinations and recipes, I aim to make them with as few ingredients and steps as possible.
This recipe is a good example of this philosophy.
I wanted to create a tomato sauce with a bit more elegance than my Homemade Pizza Sauce, but I didn’t want to spend hours roasting tomatoes or adding multiple ingredients.
The sauteing of sweet cherry tomatoes paired with a scrumptious addition of tangy capers makes this sauce worthy of any flatbread, particularly, the Gluten-Free Buckwheat Flatbread recipe from Monday!
