    from "The Well-Filled Microwave Cookbook" by Susanna Hoffman and Victoria Wise

    We always keep a supply of fresh tomatoes in the kitchen, ripening to full flavor in a basket or bowl. That means fresh tomato sauce for pasta is never more than 25 minutes from the table. Quick-from-the-Microwave Meatless Red Sauce appears once a week in both our homes. The strategy is: put the pasta water on to boil, toss together the sauce ingredients; cook the sauce in the microwave while the pasta boils on the stove top.

    Besides being delicious and incredibly speedy, a sauce of fresh tomatoes is light and energizing when your day must go on a little longer — to homework, housework, paperwork, any kind of work.

    Total Cooking Time: 23 minutes
    Standing Time: None
    Makes enough for 1 pound of pasta

    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 pounds fresh tomatoes, coarsely chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
    1/2 cup dry white or red wine or water
    1 bay leaf
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

    1. Place the onion, garlic, and oil in a large bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 3 minutes, or until the onion begins to wilt.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients, cover the bowl, and microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes, or until the tomatoes soften. Remove the cover and stir. Continue to microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 10 minutes more, or until the tomatoes have collapsed and the liquid is thickened and saucy. Remove the bay leaf and use the sauce right away or let cool. The sauce may be refrigerated, covered, for up to 2 weeks and reheated before serving.
