What type of tomatoes should I use for tomato sauce? Roma or plum tomatoes are best for this sauce, but honestly, any type of tomato will work!
Cut up your tomatoes into about 1-2 inch pieces and add to a large pot. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil.
Add olive oil and garlic into the pot with the tomatoes.
Blend until the sauce is creamy.
I like a sauce that’s pretty smooth but still a little chunky. Blend until you get the smoothness you desire!
You can serve the sauce immediately (on some good pasta!) or store in the refrigerator for a few days.
You can also freeze or can the sauce for later on. The goal for us is to always preserve enough to last us until next tomato season! We freeeze & can lots of this!!
