Tomato Pasta Sauce

This sauce is very fresh-looking, and doesn't have any paste-like qualities. It is more like seasoned tomatos to eat over pasta. And I like that this sauce is savory instead of sweet.

1 head garlic
2 10 oz. cans whole stewed tomatos
1 10 oz. can diced tomatos
1/2 TB olive oil
1 onion

Use a large frying pan or skillet.

  1. peel and chop garlic cloves
  2. chop onion
  3. saute garlic and onion in olive oil until garlic is lightly browned and onions are translucent
  4. drain tomato cans but keep juice
  5. add tomatos
  6. set heat to Medium High and cover for 5 minutes
  7. jab whole tomatos with wooden spoon to seperate into smaller pieces
  8. add a minimal amount (1-2 TB) of reserved tomato juice if desired
  9. turn heat down and let simmer for 10-15 minutes

Serve over hot pasta

I like that the sauce is "fresh looking".

Are you mocking my sauce description? I will just have to post a picture of the sauce so you can see just how "fresh-looking" it is!

Far be it from me to mock anything. I just thought it was funny that the initial description was about how it looks instead of how it tastes.

Presentation is everything. Duh.
