Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce
Absolutely awesome base recipe! We like our sauce chunky so I peeled and seeded tomatoes and coarsely chopped them. I cooked it down quite a bit and the first go around needed more liquid, I added about a half cup of merlot and cooked it off. Also, sugar is not listed, but I added several tablespoons to taste. I also added oregano to taste. I have a whole case of fresh tomatoes, so I am going to put a batch into the food processor for a more "American" sauce.
Try this as a base -then add mushrooms, green peppers, even zucchini - whatever your preference. You will be so happy you tried it!
Thank you MIND1M for an awesome sauce, I have been preparing and gifting all over town! This sauce is terrific!
