With summer being here, tomatoes are back in season, which means they’re prices are down to what I consider reasonable. So of course I bought a couple pounds. As much as I love raw tomatoes, I knew I’d never be able to eat 8 raw tomatoes before they started to go bad, so I made a small pot of tomato sauce. I had no problem eating this up in 2 days! 😉
Homemade Tomato Sauce
- 2 lbs tomatoes
- 1 onion, chopped
- herbs: basil, rosemary, oregano, thyme
- extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 375. Place the tomatoes in a dutch oven (or on a baking tray lined with a silicone baking mat, parchment paper, or foil). Bake/roast for 45 minutes.
During the last 10 minutes of cooking, heat about 1 T. of EVOO in a medium skilled and saute the onion until browned. Add to the tomato mixture and simmar of low heat until reduced to desired consistency. Stir in fresh herbs (I like a lot!).
Serve with fresh basil and/or fresh ground black pepper and more dried herbs.
New recipe coming up soon with this sauce. It was so good I’ve eaten the same meal x3 over the past 2 days. 😉
