Quick Homemade Tomato Sauce

I needed a recipe for a quick tomato sauce and all I had was canned tomatoes. I found this online and it was perfect! I hardly want "slow" cooked sauce anymore!

ingredients

directions

  • Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions; you could also use shallots if you had them. Cook until soft, a few minutes. Add garlic and saute for about a minute.
  • Add tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to the point where the sauce still simmers. Add dried herbs. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. (While it’s simmering, you can smash the sauce up a bit with a ricer or pastry blender, to break up some of the tomatoes--depends on how chunky you like your sauce.) If using fresh basil, add now.
