6 large tomatoes 3-5 green/red peppers 1 onion 3 medium sized summer squash 2 6oz cans tomato paste 4 T molasses ( you may substitute whatever sweetener you like- I need the extra iron) 4 cloves garlic 3 T olive oil water as needed
Saute diced onion, pepper and garlic in large pot. Add summer squash (run through a food processor or dice well)-cook until mostly tender. Add chopped tomatoes. Simmer 30 minutes. Add tomato paste. Stir well. Add water until reaching a slightly runny consistency. Add molasses. Season to taste with whatever seasonings you have available- I used a few fresh basil sprigs. Cook down until desired thickness. Serve over pasta/rice/or baked summer squash. Makes 8-10 one cup servings.
