Late lunch, good grub (6 qts of it)

It took a while: late start, and then had to cook the greens down a little separately because the 6-qt pot was so full. But I did make it according to this recipe, with revisions noted at the link; namely:

The two yellow squash will go in and be cooked tomorrow: ran out of room.

Red pepper instead of yellow, noted previously.

Chopping tomatoes in food processor better than in blender: pulse a few times and you still have tomato chunks instead of tomato puree. I think this is what I’ll do from now on.

Had to cook greens in a separate pot to reduce volume. This ended up taking a little more olive oil, half a large Spanish onion, chopped, and more garlic. (I was thinking I would have to eat the greens separately, but after both pots cooked for a while, there was room.)

Besides the 2 Tbsp capers about 1.5 Tbsp of the liquid. I did use 2 Tbsp of Taste #5 (the umami paste).

It’s really quite tasty—good thing, too: there’s a lot of it. Excellent topped with grated Parmesan.

UPDATE: I ate enough to add the diced yellow crookneck squash, so I’m simmering it for another 20-30 minutes. Really is tasty, and I like the huge amount of greens it contains.
