Homemade Italian Style Tomato Sauce Recipe:

Ingredients:

2-3 tablespoons good quality olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
3 lbs. Roma tomatoes, skinned, de-seeded and chopped
Sea salt and black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped basil leaves or parsley

Method:

1. Fry the onion in the oil until it is soft and pale in color. Stir in the garlic, then the tomatoes.

2. Season, cover and simmer for around an hour and a half. Stir in the herbs. Serve as is, or blend to form a smooth, thick sauce.

3. The sauce can also be reduced to create a thick, chunky consistency. The sauce freezes well, so a big batch can be prepared, divided into containers and frozen.
