Recipe Ingredients for Tomato sauce

52 oz Crushed Tomatoes
3 cloves, raw Garlic
1 serving VIGO EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
0.5 cup, chopped Onions

Recipe Directions for Tomato sauce

  1. Saute garlic in oil, add onions and carrots and saute on medium-low for about 2-3 minutes, until soft. Add tomatoes and chicken broth and simmer 45 minutes on low.

  2. Add fresh basil last 10 minutes (herbs will become bitter if cooked more than 20 minutes). Julia always adds herbs into the sauce near the end.

  3. Taste for acidity, if sauce is a bit tangy (acidic) then add 1 tbsp of sugar. For a calorie free way to cut the acidity in the sauce add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
