Tomato Sauce, Uncooked (D, KLP, TNT)
Source: Cooking Live show on Food TV network
Serves: 4 to 6

2 cups tomato, seeded and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup firmly packed fresh basil leaves, minced
1 cup firmly packed fresh parsley leaves, minced
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
3 garlic cloves, or to taste, minced
2 teaspoons salt

In a bowl, combine well all the ingredients and let the sauce stand at room temperature, covered, for at least 1 hour.

To remove the skins from the tomatoes easily, bring a pot of water to a boil, cut an "X" in the bottom of the tomatoes and drop them in for a few minutes.

Poster's Notes:
My friends brought several lovely beefsteak tomatoes with them yesterday, so I thought to try a fresh sauce, rather than a cooked one, since we had plenty of pasta in the fridge, and it was kind of warm.
