DIRECTIONS

  • Place cashews, canned tomatoes (with their juices) and tomato paste in a blender and puree until very smooth. This can take a few minutes, depending on the strength of your blender.
  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and sautée until golden. Add garlic and sautée for another 1–2 minutes, making sure not to burn it.
  • Stir in the pureed tomato mix and bring to a simmer. Add herbs, salt and sugar and simmer gently for 15–20 minutes, until sauce has slightly thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  • If desired, stir in fresh diced tomato shortly before serving and simmer until heated through.
  • Mix with, or serve over, your favorite cooked pasta and garnish with fresh basil.
