Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce

Making a homemade pasta sauce is easier than you think, and you don’t need canned tomatoes and processed ingredients to do so. Cooking can be intimidating and it’s easy to gravitate towards the “easier” option but canned or jar sauces can be high in sodium and full of unnecessary ingredients.

Try my homemade tomato sauce from scratch in 30 minutes.

Makes many servings, can freeze for later use 

You will need:

2 tbsp olive oil

1 onion minced

1 bulb garlic chopped

3-4 large handfuls of cherry tomatoes

2 large plum tomatoes

1 cup crushed tomatoes

1 pinch of coconut or maple sugar

3 tbsp Italian seasoning

2 handfuls of fresh herbs

salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp red pepper flakes

To make:

Heat a large saucepan with 2 tbsp olive oil

Add onions and cook until translucent

Add garlic and cherry tomatoes and plum tomatoes

Turn heat to medium-low and cover, opening up and stirring frequently

In about 5-10 minutes the tomatoes will start to pop open

Once the tomatoes begin to pop open mash them with a fork or use an immersion blender

(I personally like the sauce chunky so I use a spoon)

Add herbs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of sugar

Simmer and serve over pasta

Optional: Add mushrooms to the pop and simmer for a few minutes more
