Classic Spaghetti Tomato Sauce
today I’ll show you how I make a classic Spaghetti Tomato Sauce.
It is very easy to make and only needs a few ingredients.
Sometimes I use canned crushed tomatoes with basil, but only if I don’t have fresh tomatoes or basil.
For this sauce I use:
2 cans crushed Tomatoes with basil (or fresh tomatoes and basil)
1 minced garlic clove
freshly grind pepper
1 tsp salt
extra virgin olive oil
I put tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper into my blender and blend until the sauce is smooth. Then I’ll pour the sauce into a pot, add just a bit extra virgin olive oil and simmer while I cook the spaghetti. And that’s it, very easy with just a few ingredients.
Serve with Parmesan cheese.
I like tomatoes best during season and I try to preserve lots of sauce made from fresh tomatoes and basil. If we are running out of our homemade sauce, I have to use my backup, the canned crushed tomatoes.
We also use this sauce to prepare Spaghetti Meat Sauce.
I hope you like the sauce as much as we do.
