Tomato Pepper Sauce

Recipe by  

"Passed down from my grandparents, this recipe is a great way to use the extra tomato and peppers from the garden! Quick, easy and also very healthy! A nice warm lunch for the veggie lover! Makes its own sauce and can be canned for the winter months. Serve over sliced fresh buttered bread and a few shakes of salt and pepper."

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Carefully add the tomatoes to the water, and boil until the skin begins to split. Remove from the water, cool under cold running water, and peel off the skin.
  2. Place tomatoes into a large skillet, and mash with a potato masher. Mix in the bell peppers, onion and garlic. Simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes, or until onions and peppers are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I was looking for something to use up my tomatoes from my garden and this was a yummy way to do it. I've used it as a dip, and I LOVE it on hamburgers as a relish. I've even chopped up and added zucchini to it. Thank you for a great recipe!

This was great - it tasted so fresh. I didn't have an onion, so I just used some onion powder. I also added some basil, parsley, and rosemary from my yard.

Very simple and a great way to use up leftover veggies from the garden. I added about 1/2 tea of sugar to cut some of the acidity and some Italian Seasonings. We served this with some crackers and cheese and it made a great appetizer.

I found myself looking for a way to use up a bunch of tomatoes I had on my counter and stumbled across this recipe. It has a nice, fresh flavor. I added in 1/2tsp of sugar as suggested by another use, and I found it to be necessary. I also added in fresh basil, which definitely kicked this sauce up to the next level. I served it over whole wheat spaghetti. For my tastes, I had to cook the sauce about 35 minutes, the last 15 mins with a lid, because the onions weren't quite done. Next time I will try this served over bread as suggested. Very simple!
