My life has officially been taken over by tomatoes.   Is there anything else to talk about except tomatoes right now?    Tomato this, tomato that, do the tomato dance.

Do you know how many cherry tomatoes are in this big bowl below? 16 cups! And there’s a few plants that need to be picked… so double that or more.  And that’s just cherry tomatoes!

The Best Cherry Tomato Sauce

This is my absolute favorite cherry tomato sauce.  I’m a bit biased, but it’s been made by thousands of people, so trust those people and make it too!  Pretty much once you make it, you’ll come back to it time and time again!

The key to this recipe is first we oven roast the tomatoes – oh yeah, baby.  Then after that we throw them in a food processor with some fresh basil and season them.  Then it’s made!  It’s that easy.  

This homemade sauce doesn’t require you to simmer over the stove for 2 hours.   I really love this creamy sauce over pasta, with lasagna, stuffed shells.  It’s also pretty fantastic to add to pizza as a creamy sauce.    

So when you pick your cherry tomatoes,  change it up a bit and make some sauce.

This makes 3 cups of sauce.  Feel free to use immediately after, put in the fridge for tomorrow, or freeze (in a freezer bag) for a few months later.

How to Freeze Cherry Tomato Sauce

How to Freeze Tomato Sauce

Once the sauce cools down, add the sauce into freezer bags. I like to separate each bag into 2-3 cups of sauce, knowing that’s how much I’ll need fora recipe. 

Whenever I freeze sauce, puree, diced/stewed tomatoes, I always put in a freezer bag and lay flat while pressing it out, so it’s as thin as possible.  Then once it’s frozen, I stand it up.  This saves space and lets you have a better organized freezer.

To deforst, place in the refrigator the night before.  Alternatively you could defrost it in the microwave in a few minutes.
