2-Step Tomato Sauce for Dinner

2 Step Tomato Sauce

One of my daughter’s favorite meals is spaghetti and meatballs. She adores it like nothing else! I, of course, am happy to make it for her since I know she’ll have a wonderful filling meal when I make everything myself. One of the components I almost always make myself is the tomato sauce. There is seriously nothing better than a great homemade tomato sauce and the best part is that it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here is how we make it in a snap! Many times I double or triple the recipe so I always have a stash on hand when you need it!

Quick Tomato Sauce

4 cloves of thinly sliced garlic

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 28-ounce cans of whole, peeled tomatoes

2 leaves of basil, torn

1. Warm the olive oil over medium heat and add the thinly sliced garlic. Let it stew for about 3 to 4 minutes.

2. Pour in the tomatoes and basil leaves and simmer for about 45 minutes while you do other things. Stir it every so often and add a pinch of kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper as needed. As you stir the tomatoes they will break apart and thicken into a sauce. If you would like a smooth suace puree it in a blender, or with a hand blender, about 30 minutes into stewing the tomatoes.  When it is thickened to desired consistency remove from heat and serve!
