Homemade Red Sauce


We have tons of fresh ripe tomatoes, and what better way to use some of these delicious tomatoes than to make a homemade pasta sauce!

Absolutely d’lish, and worth most definitely worth the time.


  • 16 med-large ripe tomatoes
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 12 garlic cloves, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • sugar to taste
  • 10 basil leaves, chopped


  1. With a sharp knife cut a small “x” on the bottom of each tomato, just enough to pierce the skin; then blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for about 1 minute.  Peel and seed the tomatoes and puree in a food processor.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium high heat in pan; then add the garlic, and fry the garlic for a couple of minutes.  Add the tomato puree and bring to a boil.  Simmer uncovered until the sauce reduces by half.  Add salt and sugar to taste.
  3. Stir in basil just before serving.
