Basic Tomato Sauce:
Green Olive Pesto:


In a heavy 4-quart saucepan, combine the mushrooms, red onion, red pepper flakes, scallions, garlic, wine, tomatoes, and Basic Tomato Sauce and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes. The mixture should be thick like a ragu. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper and transfer to a large, shallow serving bowl.

Toast the bread and smear with Green Olive Pesto. Stand the crostini upright at varying angles in the mushroom hodge-podge and serve immediately in the center of the table.

Basic Tomato Sauce:

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft and light golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the thyme and the carrot and saute until the carrot is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and juice and bring to a boil, stirring often. Lower the heat and simmer until thick, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and serve. This sauce will keep refrigerated for one week and up to six months in the freezer.

Yield: 4 cups

Green Olive Pesto:

In a food processor, combine the olives, onion, pine nuts, and garlic and blend for 1 minute. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil until it forms a thick, smooth paste. Let stand 1/2 hour before using.

Yield: 2 1/2 cups
