Ingredients2 pounds of sauce tomatoes (I used Roma)
1 yellow onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoon olive oil
2-3 tablespoons tomato paste
Splash of red wine (optional)
1/2 chopped parsley and/or basil leaves, plus more for serving
Salt and pepper, to taste
Grated parmesan, to taste
Add olive oil to a large saucepan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add onion and sauté until translucent (about 2-3 minutes) then add garlic and season with salt and pepper. If you are using red wine, add a splash once the garlic is fragrant and let it boil off. Stir in the tomatoes and bring the saucepan to high heat until most of the water boils off. Add tomato paste and mix until combined. Remove the pan from heat and add the herbs and more salt and pepper to taste.
Serve warm over pasta with additional herbs as garnish and grated parmesan cheese if desired. Bon appétit!
Note: If you have an abundance of tomatoes, you can cut them into halves or quarters, freeze them on a tray, then transfer them to a ziplock or Tupperware to be used at a later date for an equally delicious fresh sauce!
