Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the tomatoes in the melted butter until they begin to fall apart, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the basil, olive oil, garlic salt, salt, and pepper. Slowly stir the flour into the mixture and cook until it begins to thicken, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the water through the mixture to break up any lumps of the flour. Mix the garlic into the sauce and simmer another 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Excellent basic sauce recipe. Easy to prepare great flavor. Substituted red wine for the water. This sauce is full of flavor and coats the pasta evenly. Will be adding this one to the regular rotation. You should definitely try this one.

Delicious! I was concerned at first, but it turned out lovely. Here's some hints I found useful: if using dried instead of fresh basil, use only four teaspoons. I also found that I didn't need the 1/4 cup water, and added used two tablespoons whole wheat flour rather than one all purpose. Also, you can just use a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, and if you want to save some calories, only use one teaspoon margarine rather than a tablespoon butter, and omit the oil. It will still taste great.

This really was a fantastic and simple recipe. I love that I can make it using all-natural ingredients. I didn't have any small tomatoes, so I used 4 large ones instead, and it still turned out great. I also had some ready-to-serve portobello mushroom Italian sausage in my fridge, so I threw that in there. This was my first attempt at making homemade pasta sauce and I will definitely be doing this again. Really and truly amazing.
