Spaghetti with Fresh Tomato Sauce

This easy no-cook tomato sauce calls for parsley, but can also be made with basil or chopped fresh fennel fronds.



Ingredient Line: 
1 cup parsley leaves
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. garlic-flavored olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 bunch (8) green onions, cut into 2-inch lengths
Ingredient Line: 
2 lb. tomatoes, quartered (3 large or 5 small tomatoes)
Ingredient Line: 
8 oz. dry spaghetti


1. Pulse parsley with oil in food processor until finely chopped. Add green onions, and pulse until onions are chopped. Add tomatoes, and pulse 7 to 8 times, or until chunky sauce forms. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and let stand to develop flavors while preparing pasta.

2. Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions. Drain. Serve topped with fresh tomato sauce.

Comments on this Recipe

This is AMAZING!!! I substituted fresh basil for parsley, used olive oil and 2 large cloves garlic, added 1 can tomato paste, and slowly heated it and let it simmer for a few minutes. My Italian vegetarian husband reluctantly admitted that it was better than his pasta!

tried this sauce was a bit raw and will taste better if its cooked fro 5-10 minutes with herbs

Very good. Fresh &amp; tasty. I did heat for about 8 minutes on stovetop and added 2 minced garlic cloves.
