The home of tasty food recipes invites you to try Homemade tomato pasta sauce recipe. Enjoy my collection of delicious food recipes and learn how to make Homemade tomato pasta sauce.

Use this tomato sauce as a base for other flavoured sauces. It is vegan friendly.

Makes 3 cups 


1 tbs olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 onion, sliced
1 tbs tomato paste
2 x 400g cans chopped peeled tomatoes
salt and ground black pepper
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup chopped basil
1/3 cup chopped flat leaf parsley 


Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened but not browned.

Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute (this 'cooks off' the paste, giving it a richer more intense flavour).

Add the peeled tomatoes, reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until thickened.

Stir through the salt and pepper, sugar, basil and parsley, adjusting the seasoning as required. 


Add red or white wine and some sprigs of rosemary to serve as a sauce with lamb shanks. Create a rich minestrone soup by adding beef stock and vegetables. Or simply add mince for spaghetti bolognaise.
