Homemade Tomato Sauce

Knowledge is knowing that tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

In this Case, we put them in Sauce!


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3 – 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 12 oz can of tomato paste
  • Fresh oregano, basil about 2 teaspoons, I go by color and taste.
  • Dash of sugar, takes the acidity from the tomatoes


  • Heat oil in a large deep pot, add onions and garlic.
  • Once onions and garlic have browned, add tomatoes and paste. Add the seasonings and dash of sugar.
  • Heat to a low boil while stirring.
  • Turn heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 2-3 hours; stirring frequently so nothing sticks or burns.

This recipe makes a lot of sauce, so I put them in glass jars to store them . One chills in the refrigerator and the rest I freeze for later use.

The sauce is BO$$! See you in the Kitchen!
