I have been making homemade tomato sauce for pizza and spaghetti for a long time.
Here is my recipe. I hope you LOVE it!
Chop up one onion (either red or yellow) and add to a pan with about 6 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil
Add 4-6 cloves of garlic, peeled
Let it saute for a bit.
Add fresh or dried basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and touch of sugar. (I use around 2 tsp. of the salt and herbs, but never ever measure. It’s all in the wrist) 🙂
Add a large can of whole tomatoes (106 ounces). I use the can from Costco. You could also use 3-4 cans from your local grocery store.
Pour it in and blend with an emersion blender.
Add a good bit of balsamic vinegar, about 1/4 cup
Season with salt if it needs it.
Done and done. You have a lovely, bright tomato sauce.
From this point, you can add meatballs to slowly simmer and cook, or spread on a pizza and top with your favorite toppings!!!
