Directions

In a large pan, heat the 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the green tomatoes to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the basil to the tomato mixture and stir to combine. Remove from the heat.

Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a food processor and add the Parmesan. Pulse the mixture a few times, until it is blended but still chunky. Set food processor on low and stream in remaining olive oil. Blend until the sauce is the desired consistency.

Serve over pasta and enjoy!
