Easy Homemade Tomato Pasta Sauce

Such an tasty, nutritious and delicious pasta sauce recipe with the purest ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ small brown onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 300g canned diced tomatoes
  • sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 10g (¼ cup) chopped fresh basil
  • 10g (¼ cup) chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and oregano and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened, stirring frequently.
  • Add the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until thickened, stirring occasionally. 
  • Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Remove from the heat and stir through the fresh basil and parsley and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  • Transfer the sauce to a high-powered blender (or use a stick blender) and blend until the desired consistency is reached. For a chunkier sauce, puree half of the sauce mixture and mix it back through the sauce. For a smooth sauce, puree it all. Enjoy!
  • When completely cool, any extra sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or place in the freezer for up to six months.
