Quick and Fresh Tomato Sauce Recipe

How to Make Quick and Fresh Tomato Sauce


  1. Remove skin from tomatoes and scoop out the seeds. Cut the tomatoes in half and purée in a blender or food processor. 
  2. Heat the tomato purée in a low, wide saucepan over high heat. Add salt, olive oil, tomato paste, garlic and basil leaves. Bring to a boil, add in sugar and season to taste.
  3. Lower heat to a brisk simmer and cook until the sauce is reduced by almost half, stirring occasionally.  A medium-thick sauce will take about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Tip: Add other herbs like chopped oregano for extra flavour.

Note: Fresh tomato sauce will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator or may be frozen.
