The Perfect Homemade Tomato Sauce

     My homemade tomato sauce is the best.  Or so, everyone who tries it says. My kids loved it, and my friends praise me every time I make it.  They even want to take some home.  I usually make large quantities because whatever is left over, I freeze it in smaller containers and use some other time.  The tomato sauce is also perfect to make lasagna.  I just take the sauce from the freezer, let it thaw, and the lasagna will be done effortless.  And all of it, is all made from scratch in no time.  I assure you,  your guests will compliment your cooking too.  Nothing beats that!
Homemade Sweet Tomato Sauce

  • 2 pounds of Plum tomatoes
  • 1 can (big) of unseasoned whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 can (big) unseasoned diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (big) unseasoned tomato sauce
  • 1 and 1/2 cup of onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 of fresh basil 
  • 2 tablespoons of oregano
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt ( or according to taste)
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
     Start by heating the oil in a deep cooking pan.  Add the peeled garlic cloves, no need to mince just cut them up a little.  Also, add the onion, and the basil and let it saute for a few minutes, or until the garlic is golden brown.  Cut the tomatoes in quarts and introduce them in the pan along with the oregano.  Stir well and let them cook in medium heat for 5 minutes.  Then, add the canned tomato sauce, the canned diced tomatoes, the canned whole tomatoes and the sugar.  Mix together.  Season with salt and pepper. Cook on low heat for about 40 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pan.  
   And that is the secret to my perfect homemade tomato sauce that will impress your guests.  It is easy, delicious, and you will never have to use the store tomato sauce ever again, because my tomato sauce is addictive.
    When the sauce is all cooked up, just toss some pasta in boiling water and serve a delicious pasta with your favorite Parmesan Cheese (always buy the good kind), and do not forget to check out my Bruschettas recipe.  Good luck, and ... Qué aproveche!
