Fresh Tomato Sauce

Tomato sauce made with fresh tomatoes tastes quite different from sauce made of canned or stewed tomatoes.  Light and sweet, it's good on pasta, rice, mashed potatoes, meat, fish, poultry.

1        clove garlic, crushed
2        Tbsp olive oil
½ lb    local beef
3        large tomatoes (or 6 small)
1Tbsp  dried or fresh basil
2Tbsp  fresh parsley, chopped
salt and pepper

Sauté onion and garlic briefly in oil before adding beef.  Cook over medium heat until meat turns gray.  Chop and add tomatoes, basil and parsley.  Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Makes 2 cups.
