HOMEMADE ITALIAN TOMATO SAUCE


HOW TO MAKE A HOMEMADE ITALIAN TOMATO SAUCE: A great tomato sauce is a must in every kitchen. It add the so much flavors to your all types of pasts when you serve it over, and it also has a unique taste when used for dipping especially when it’s full of authentic Italian flavors.

We’re crazy about this sauce recipe because it’s not only delicious, but it cooks up super fast. Don’t get us wrong, slow-cooked sauces that simmer all afternoon are perfect on the weekends, but when time allows, we can also whip up a batch of this during the week and it tastes better than any jar we’d grab at the supermarket.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 medium white onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and finely diced
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
