Garlic and Onion Tomato Sauce

Home | Recipes | G


  • 28 oz Plum tomatoes -- pureed
  • 1/2 ts Ground thyme
  • 1 ts Fresh basil -- minced
  • 1 Garlic clove -- minced
  • 1 sm Onion
  • Black pepper -- to taste
  • 4 ts Olive oil


* Use plum tomatoes canned in tomato puree if available.
Chop onion; peel garlic and mince. In heavy skillet, place the olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; stir occasionally and cook for 5-6 minutes until onion is tender. Drain tomatoes through a sieve placed over a bowl. Add thyme, basil and tomatoes to skillet. Use large spoon to crush tomatoes. Scrape the puree from the sieve and add to the skillet. Do not use the remaining tomato juice for this recipe. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring often. Continue to crush tomatoes with wooden spoon. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes; sauce will thicken. Remove from heat, add fresh ground black pepper to taste, salt also if you wish. Serve this sauce with scrambled eggs, baked souffles, and pasta, or refrigerate and use as needed by reheating slowly. Use in recipes for cooked dried beans and in crockpot recipes using meats, chicken or pasta.
Yield: about 2 cups
