Homemade Basil Tomato Sauce Recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Serves: 6

Ingredients

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, peeled, coarsely chopped (2 cups)
1 large carrot or 2 small carrots, peeled, coarsely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
3 garlic cloves, peeled, finely chopped
5 large tomatoes, coarsely chopped (4 cups) or 2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, drained, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Coarse sea salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil at the very end of cooking.

Instructions

Instructions
In a large heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onion and carrot for 2 to 3 minutes, reduce the heat to medium, cover and sweat the vegetables over medium heat for about 25 minutes or until soft and golden.

Add the garlic, stir well, cover and sweat for 5 minutes more or until softened. Add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes to blend the flavors.

Push the cooked sauce through a food mill or blend in a food processor and push through a sturdy, small-holed strainer into a large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.

The sauce can be cooled and stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or frozen up to 3 months.

Yield: 8 servings
