Sliced Tomatoes in Tomato Sauce


When I first made this for the GF, she looked at me (and I love to use this word) askance. Part of it was the tomato sauce -- she's from Singapore, where tomato juice is unheard of. And part of it's the name of the dish -- tomatoes in tomato sauce? What's up with that? But it's hard to resist this much tomato-ness, and afterwards I started gretting messages from the GF satying she'd just happened to pick up some tomato juice and tomatoes, and could I make that tomato thing when I come over?

Sliced Tomatoes in Tomato Sauce

3 medium tomatoes
salt
pepper
4 tsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
1/2 to 1 tsp finely chopped jalapeno or other green chile
3/4 cup tomato juice
1 tbsp chopped parsley

Cut tomatoes crosswise into 4 or 5 slices, about half an inch each. Put on a plate and lightly salt and pepper the slices on each side.

Put oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and jalapeno. Once garlic starts to sizzle put in tomato slices in a single layer. Fry lightly, about a minute on each side, so they develop a light brown tint. Add the tomato sauce and parsley and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and serve.
