Fresh Tomato Sauce
- 2 pints grape tomatoes, quartered
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon, or more, chopped fresh basil
- 1/4 cup white wine
- teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- pasta to go with the sauce
- Parmesan cheese for sprinkling
I started by chopping up the onion and garlic and heating up the olive oil. Then I added the onion and cooked it for a few minutes and then added the garlic and cooked for about another minute.
While the onion was cooking, I sliced the tomatoes and then added them to the pan. I also added the wine. Then I covered the pan and simmered for about 10 minutes.
After ten minutes, the tomatoes looked like the ones in the pictures.
Using my wooden spoon, I crushed up the tomatoes. I was actually really happy with the texture. There were still some skins visible, but most of the tomatoes broke down really nicely.
Next, I added the basil and let the sauce simmer without the lid for about ten minutes while the pasta cooked.
Finally, I served a heaping pile of sauce over the pasta. It was delicious, super easy and fast! No need for jarred sauce here!!!
