Basic Tomato Sauce Recipe

Tomato Sauce is so easy to make I will never buy it from the store again- and it’s so much tastier!

Basic Tomato Sauce:

A splash of extra virgin olive oil

1 28oz can of whole peeled tomatoes in their juices…. can the best quality you can, I like San Marzano

1 can of tomato pasta, if you’d like a thicker sauce (better for pizza, just the whole tomatoes + EVOO is fine for pasta)

If you’d like to fancy it up a bit:

Red Garlic Flakes


Some red wine


Whatever your heart fancies…

Heat the EVOO in a medium saucepan over medium heat…. add in the whole tomatoes and heat the mixture up for a few minutes till the sauce is hot.  Crush the the tomatoes against the side of the pan with a wooden spoons.  You can also run the tomatoes (and their juices) through the food processor if you don’t want as chunky of a sauce.  Simmer a few minutes and enjoy!
