“A delicious and fresh tasting pasta sauce. The fresh basil added at the end is essential. This sauce can be left chunky (which I prefer) or blended in a food processor to a smooth sauce. Serve spooned over cooked pasta with plenty of parmesan cheese.” - by Carolyn S
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir the tomatoes, red pepper flakes, vinegar, and sugar into the onion and garlic mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the flavors blend to your liking, 45 to 60 minutes. Stir the basil into the sauce; season with salt and pepper.

"I just made this and it was amazing! I only prepared for 2 servings, and kept all of the ingredients in the same proportions, only with 3 differences: -added 3/4oz cream cheese during simmer -substitu..." See moreted white vinegar for balsamic -used crush basil during simmer, topping with fresh basil upon serving RIDICULOUSLY TASTY, and very simple too :)"
"Excellent sauce... I used fresh tomatoes (8 romas) as I avoid all canned goods due to high sodium counts. I doubled the red pepper flakes and halved the sugar but left the rest the way as stated. On..." See morece done cooking and before adding the basil, I used my immersion blender to thicken it up with the chopped tomatoes/onions. Excellent served over any pasta. Have made this once already and forgot to review :) Good stuff! thanks for the recipe!"
