Fresh Tomato Sauce
From Cook's Country
The best tomato sauce recipes consist of nothing more than garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, herbs, and salt. With that philosophy in mind, we set out to develop a fresh tomato sauce recipe that capitalized on this list of ingredients. We found that starting the oil and garlic in the pan at the same time prevented the garlic from burning, and peeling the tomatoes (but keeping their seeds) was a must.
Makes 2 cups, enough for 1 pound of pasta
To keep the garlic from burning, start the olive oil and garlic in a cold pan. Add a pinch of sugar to the cooked sauce if your tomatoes aren't as sweet as you'd like. If the sauce seems too thick, toss the sauce and pasta with a little reserved pasta cooking water to help spread the sauce evenly.
