When my son comes back home from school, he’s usually hungry. His comfort food of choice is penne al sugo. Yesterday, I prepared tomato sauce with bacon and black olives for him and then used it to spice up my corn tortillas as well. It was yummy.
What I had in the pantry:
2 Cans of tomato sauce (plain and simple just made with tomatoes, no other unnecessary spices added)
1 Can of black olives
4 Slices of bacon (I use the one without preservatives)
Extra virgin olive oil
Yellow corn tortillas
How I made the fake lasagna:
I cooked the tomato sauce in a pot with several (don’t judge me) tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, the four slices of bacon cut in small pieces, the olives hashed in the blender. I let the sauce cook for a while (probably 40/45 minutes) at the slowest temperature. I prepared the corn tortillas by wetting them with water and then cooking them on a previously heated non-stick pan. Once the tortillas are golden, I assembled the fake lasagna by layering them with the sauce. For my portion I used 3 tortillas. I let the dish sit for a while to allow the ingredients to blend. It was delicious. The picture says it all.
