Backroad Bistros, Farmhouse Fare

By Jane Sigal
Broadway - 1994

This was so much better than I thought it would be (not that I thought it would be bad). I used panko and parmesan and followed the recipe but for the amount of olive oil. I used only a scant tablespoon for sauteing the vegetables, and a bare two tablespoons for the sauce. The mixture seemed a bit wet but once baked, the texture was lovely. It was very good served hot and also good as a leftover served at room temperature. The big surprise was how fabulous the sauce was--and so simple. On the other hand, we are in the height of tomato season and the ones I used were practically right off the vine, so it would be hard to make anything but great sauce. I am making a nice big pot of the sauce to put into freezer containers and tuck away for when tomato season is over.
