A fresh tomato sauce that goes particularly well with pasta. Serves 4 to 6 depending on what it's used for. The only disadvantage is that it takes a long time to cook and thus requires planning ahead.

Recipe Ingredients for Fresh Tomato Sauce

1000 grams Tomatoes
0.33 cup Garlic (about 6 cloves)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
65 grams Tomato paste

Recipe Directions for Fresh Tomato Sauce

  1. Roughly chop the tomatoes and cut the garlic intto thin slices. (If you're not the biggest fan of garlic, you can use less than the amount specified in the recipe.)

  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan (medium heat).

  3. Add the garlic slices and cook, stirring, until they have softened (about 30 seconds - 1 minute).

  4. Add the tomatoes to the pan. If you would like to add any herbs to the sauce, put them in with the tomatoes. (I especially recommend basil.)

  5. Let the tomatoes cook until they give off enough liquid so that most of the pieces are submerged.

  6. Add the tomato paste and stir.

  7. Cook the mixture over a medium heat for 40-50 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to the desired consistency.

  8. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
