Fried Tomato, Onion, and Mushroom Ragout

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"When I was growing up, my mother used to make a simple dish of fried tomatoes and onions that we would soak up with buttered bread. This is an updated version to which I have added mushrooms and fresh basil. My daughter loves this over whole wheat penne pasta and topped with Parmesan cheese."

  2. Sprinkle on the basil, salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

Very good. I substituted crimini mushrooms and used tomato paste instead of wedges (2tbsps paste+1/2 cup water at high altitude). I put the ragout over baked polenta topped with goat cheese. Del...

Loved this! The onions cooked down nicely. I did add a smidge of tomato sauce to thicken it a bit more.

Great sauce! I froze it in silicone muffin cups. Just the right size for 1 person. Thanks for sharing!
