I haven’t been on Home Cooking in a while. Things have sure elevated around here. You guys are making me drool.
Crushed isn’t the end of the world @JeetKuneBao. My mom made a delicious, rich sauce - like yours looks - with crushed and paste, so did I for years. If you don’t feel like pulling out the food processor to crush whole peeled ones, slice off the tops and crush them by hand right into the pot. It’s messy but it’ll make you feel Italian.
Your sauce looks very good. Totally different sauce, but it reminds me of Ethiopian Doro Wat, especially with that egg.
P.S. I take pictures of my ingredients too, to remember what I used.
