Spaghetti Sauce

I had so many tomatoes that I didn’t know what to do with, so I thought I would make some spaghetti sauce.

Saturday 001

First I browned some garlic in olive oil.

Saturday 002

Then washed and sliced my tomatoes

Saturday 003
Picked the LAST of my basil from my garden, mix it in with the garlic on a low heat.

Saturday 006
Quarter and peel the tomatoes.

Saturday 007
Add the tomatoes to the garlic and basil, crank up the heat

Saturday 008

Mash with the back of a slotted spoon (I actually used my potato masher, which worked a lot faster) heat until comes to a boil. At this point it was a little thinner than I’d like, so I added a small can of tomato paste, which helped it thicken up. I also added about two tablespoons of course ground kosher salt to taste and some dried Oregano. Simmer for a few hours. This also freezes really well, so I put it into Heavy Duty Ziplocs and put it in the freezer to enjoy later!

And hey, Paul and I were in the paper this morning!

  1. Oh, Ali, I don’t know what makes me laugh more – the spaghetti sauce or the article! Both are amazing. Nicely done. Save some of the sauce for Charissa and I when we come in a few weeks, k?
