Who doesn’t love a great tomato sauce, 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.
We like to add some sugar to our sauce; it’s easy for the acidity of the tomatoes to overwhelm everything else, but that’s why we add a little bit of sugar to balance things out. We like to serve this sauce on top of spaghetti but we also love it for dipping – a few slices of warm garlic bread should do the trick! And we usually make a double batch so we can freeze some homemade pasta sauce to use down the road. We know how easy it is to grab a jar of sauce from the store, but give this recipe a try. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make a homemade pasta sauce.
