Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce

I've been searching all over the internet for a very simple pasta sauce recipe using fresh tomatoes. Every recipe I came across either used at least some canned tomatoes, or required more prep work than I was up for. So I decided to just try making my own, using 5 very simple ingredients. I really loved the outcome, and I hope you will too!


8 roma tomatoes
5 large fresh basil leaves
2 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Cut stem end off of romas and cut into quarters. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Heat in a sauce pan and simmer for an hour.

Can also be used as pizza sauce

(Note: you can add 1 can of tomato paste to thicken if preferred)
