Lisa’s Essential Tomato Sauce

home made tomato pasta sauce

This Essential Tomato Sauce is truly essential. 

The secret to making it great is to cook it for a long time, and taste for seasoning towards the end. There is a point in the cooking when it transforms from meh to AMAZING.
Always have some stashed in the freezer, you never know when it will come in handy.

Check out this matzagne (that’s a lasagne made from matzo, especially for Passover) – it will become part of your Passover repertoire for sure.  Please let me know what you think!

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat and sauté the onion until very soft but not brown, about 20 minutes.
  2. If using fresh tomatoes, cut a cross into the end of each tomato and put them into a large bowl. Cover with boiling water and allow to stand for 15 minutes. Tip off the water and peel the tomatoes.
  3. Chop the tomatoes, keeping the seeds and juice and set aside.
  4. Increase the heat in the pan and add the tomato paste and cook for a minute or so, stirring.
  5. Add the garlic, tomatoes, water (if using), salt and pepper. Stir and bring to the boil, turn the heat down and simmer for 2 hours, stirring from time to time. Taste for seasoning.
  6. Freezes well
