Peeling the tomatoes is optional. This simple marinara sauce is delicious over your favorite whole wheat pasta. Top with freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. Enhance your protein intake with a side of Turkey Meatballs. If good fresh tomatoes are out-of-season, you can substitute a 28 oz. can of peeled plum tomatoes.

Recipe Ingredients for Fresh Tomato Sauce

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 3/4 lbs fresh tomatoes, chopped bite-sized
10 basil leaves, chopped
1 ground pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Fresh Tomato Sauce

  1. In a large skillet, saute the garlic in the olive oil until golden.

  2. Add the chopped tomatoes and basil leaves, cover pan, and simmer until tomatoes have released their juices (approximately 15-20 minutes).

  3. If you don't like chunky tomato sauce, the sauce can be pureed with a hand blender or in the bowl of a food processor.
