Tomato Sauce And Paste Recipe For Sauce?
0

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a good recipe for a homemade sauce to put over gluten free noodles? I am thinking about using tomato sauce and paste? Is Contadina a good brand or Hunts or there is an organic one at my store too. I have no idea which to use. I am thinking garlic and oregano and basil too. Any ideas?

My favourite tomato sauces start from roasting tomatoes, onions and garlic and then just blending all in food processor or blender. I slice the tomatoes in half, place cut side up on the sheet, drizzle with olive oil (don't bother with EVOO), sprinkle with S&P, a touch of sugar and fresh thyme leaves. Then I throw on some garlic cloves and chunks of onion and roast until tender and charred. Heck - sometimes I also roast a carrot and/or celery. That is all it takes for a wonderful sauce. You can add oregno instead of the thyme. If you use basil, be sure to add at the end - don't roast it. You use fresh raw ingredients without any need of tomato sauce and/or paste. Oh, I've also roasted tomatillos with the tomatoes. Delicious.

ETA: Don't forget to slip the skin off the tomatoes (which is very easy once they have roasted).

That sauce sounds amazing and as soon as I can buy fresh tomatoes I will make it!!! The tomatoes here right now are very very mealy and grainy. So for right now until I can get fresh, I have to use canned tomato products. I'm going to print out your recipe and save it for later. Thanks

Believe me, our tomatoes here frankly suck this time of year. However, roma tomatoes are the best to use in winter as they retain more flavour than others. So, I still make the sauce over winter. Roasting the tomatoes really concentrates the flavour and brings out the natural sugars as they begin to caramelize. I would recommend still making them if you can find roma tomatoes.

Do you think that this recipe would work with canned tomatoes? How many romas would I need if I use fresh? Last time I tried to use romas, my sauce was pink!

The flavour and texture will be different but I would personally try it. I would still roast them to concentrate their flavour. Hmmmm...when I make this sauce I make enough for one hearty meal for two then freeze the equivalent. So, I would probably use about 6-8 romas, one onion (chunks) and a few cloves of garlic.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
