Easy Raw Tomato Sauce or Bruschetta Spaghetti

Bruschetta Spaghetti or Raw Tomato SauceWe had some tomatoes that needed to get used really fast.  I thought about making them into a homemade salsa, but I wanted to use the tomatoes in a main dish.  So what really sounded great was a raw tomato sauce.  I wanted to make something gourmet, yet, minimalistic, simple, easy, and tasty.  This recipe for raw tomato sauce totally fits the bill!

Spaghetti Bruschetta

This has quickly become a family favorite in many ways.  The family loves the taste, and I love that this is a meal that can be put together when I don’t know what else to make, and the day gotten away from me.  By the time the pasta is done cooking, the fresh sauce has been prepared, has had time to rest, letting the flavors come together, and is ready to be served.

You can chop the tomatoes by hand (as shown above), or blend the tomato sauce (as shown below).  Both ways are fabulous.  Its depends on what texture you desire.

The Verdict: The first thought that came to me after eating this raw tomato sauce was “bruschetta”!  It has all of those incredible flavors of the tomato, basil, and olive oil.  You can totally use this recipe on little baguettes, you just might want to halve the recipe.

All of my kids love tomatoes, and always gobble this up.  They like the tomatoes hand chopped best.  They love their salad greens topped with this bruschetta as the bruschetta makes an excellent chunky dressing.

    Yay, raw! :) Jenna Paslay has a spiral noodle maker that makes zucchini into spiral noodles, so she can have everything raw on her plate. I think it’s called a “spirooli.” I’ve tasted it, and it’s so delicious, you’d never know it’s all raw. Your sauce sounds yummy with lots of flavor! I’ll try it when I get enough tomatoes!
