This is my go-to tomato sauce recipe, especially in the summer. Minimal processing means bright, fresh, juicy flavors. Just throw everything in the pot, puree and pretty quickly you have some top quality sauce to use on pasta, pizza, dipping bread and veggies - just about any place. Since I had nearly 30 lb of tomatoes to do something with, I tripled the recipe and canned it. Hopefully it'll last until next summer!

Ingredients

  • 3 lb tomatoes, quartered
  • 3 Tbsp herbs, roughly chopped (I used a mix of basil, sage, thyme and oregano)
  • 2 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 tsp salt

Preparation

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add tomatoes, herbs and EVOO. Cook until liquids overtake the solids and come to a boil, about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Take off heat and let cool slightly. Add salt and puree with a hand blender or in a food processor or blender. Be careful with hot liquids! Can, freeze or use immediately.
