Making your own fresh tomato sauce takes quite a bit of prep work, but I promise it is well worth the effort. The flavor from homemade tomato sauce far exceeds any canned sauce you can find at the store


·      1 tbsp of olive oil

·      30 Italian tomatoes

·      4 garlic cloves (minced)

·      1 onion

·      ¼ cup of red wine (optional)

·      1 tbsp of sugar

·      salt and pepper to taste


1      Prepare a large bowl of ice water. Immerse whole tomatoes in boiling water until the skin begins to peel, about 8 minutes.

2      Remove with a spoon and place in an ice bath. Let sit until cool enough to handle, then remove skin.

3      In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the onion in the oil until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic at the last minute so it doesn't burn

4      Pour in the tomatoes. Stir in the basil, wine, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to low, simmer for 2 hours.

5      At the end you can use the hand mixer to make it smoother as you want
