Quick and easy tomato sauce cooks up in 20 minutes. Quick and easy tomato sauce cooks up in 20 minutes.
Number of Servings: 4


    2 Large Tomatoes cut into large chunks (use different colors for interest)
    10 Cherry Tomatoes quartered
    10-15 leaves of fresh basil coarsely chopped (I use scissors to cut down on time)
    1 yellow onion
    1/4 cup Plain Tomato Juice
    Salt to taste
    Pepper to taste
    Crushed Red Pepper to taste
    1/2 tbs olive oil


In a large saute pan, saute the onion in the olive oil for 1 minute, add basil and saute for an additional 2-3 minutes. Stir contantly so the basil does not burn. Add the tomatoes and tomato juice. Bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer. Add salt, pepper and crushed red pepper to taste. Do not cover since the sauce needs to reduce a bit. Simmer for 20-30 mins until the sauce has reached a tomato juice consistency. It should be a bit thin. Serves at least 4. I usually serve it over pasta, but I think it might be spectacular over spaghetti squash.
