Classically, ragù is made by slowly cooking meat in broth, tomato paste, wine, and aromatic vegetables until everything melds into chunky, saucy deliciousness … In my version, the tomatoes and their beautiful juices mix with the pan juice from the chicken to create the broth.
It’s tomato season! Technically a fruit, not a vegetable, the tomato has great nutritional value with lots of Vitamins A and C and provide a good source of lycopene, which supports heart and bone health. Delicious and nutritious – the best of both worlds!
Were you thinking grilled burgers, hot dogs and potato salad? … if you want to make your summer meal classy you need to bump it up to a grilled steak with some sassy side dishes.
I want to remind you that we are in tomato season, so use these local beauties when they are at their peak of taste and freshness.
