Organic Tomato SauceIn Italy, a sauce should never overwhelm the taste of the pasta or dish; instead, it should only complement it. Here’s a quick recipe for a simple and healthy homemade pasta sauce. It combines fresh basil, garlic, Roma tomatoes, and the spices of Italy. Enjoy!

Serves 6-8


  • 6-8 cloves organic garlic, thinly sliced
  • ½ chopped white onion (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons organic dried oregano
  • Handful fresh organic basil, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 6-7 large Organic Roma tomatoes
  • ¼ cup, 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. In medium pot, boil water. Add tomatoes for roughly 1 minute or until skin begins to peel. Quickly remove and add to ice water. Peel skins and blend tomatoes in a food processor or by hand for a chunkier alternative.
  2. In a large sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat. Once oil begins to shimmer, add onion, garlic, salt, and dried oregano. Stir until flavors are well-blended, but do not let garlic darken. Add in tomatoes and crush down any large piece with a fork. Cook uncovered for 30 minutes to an hour. Once completed, mix into pasta. Add whole basil leaves as garnish and/or stir in chopped basil.
  3. Can the extra sauce and save for next time!

  3. Looks nice. I’m trying it. Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. I used this as my base to make vodka sauce and it came out amazing, going to make a regular batch for later in the week, nothing is better than making your own sauce!

  5. Made it this morning and it tasted amazing, cant wait to have it with dinner tonight! Do you have nutritional value for this?

  6. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole
    my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

  7. I made this sauce today. It does taste very good – sweet. I turned down the burner to med/low to let the sauce cook for 1 hour. Leaving it at medium, boiled ti too rapidly. There wasn’t any “extra” sauce to “can” and use later, as this was only enough sauce for about 3 servings. Organic Roma tomatoes aren’t really “Large” as the recipe calls for. They are more or less medium. The next time I make this I will double the tomatoes to make a larger amount of sauce. But it certainly is an easy to make basic recipe and has a wonderful taste. (Not all in my house like basil, so I just added basil as a garnish).

  8. Hurrah, that’s what I was seeking for, what a data!
