Since I love homegrown tomatoes so much, I decided to make sure that none of them went to waste by ripening too fast. Last weekend, I cooked up a huge pot of yellow tomatoes and make a yellow tomato pasta sauce. Of course, this same recipe could be used for red tomatoes.
Troy and I like our tomato sauce really simple without a lot of seasonings in it and this one turned out great. As you can see, it made a lot of sauce.
I did not measure the amount of anything exactly but just made it to taste.
Easy Homemade Tomato Sauce
This sauce is very healthy and simple. I froze the jars of sauce to use throughout the winter. We will appreciate having garden fresh sauce when it is snowing out.
Homegrown tomatoes or tomatoes from the farmer's market.
Cut tomatoes into pieces (they do not have to be small- it all cooks down to a sauce anyways).
Add to a large pot, add a small amount of water (about 1/4 cup) and cook on high until boiling.
Turn heat down to medium-low and stir periodically until tomatoes have cooked down and sauce has thickened.
My huge pot of tomatoes cooked for about 1 1/2 hours.
I waited for the sauce to cool and then blended it and froze it in jars. There is nothing like fresh tomato sauce! I love adding basil to my sauce too but Troy is not a fan.
Have you ever made a fresh tomato sauce?
I would love to hear your recipe!
