Tomato sauce is often used in chili’s, soups, pastas, pizzas and so much more. Pantries should always be stocked with a couple cans of tomato sauce as you never know when you will need a can and they don’t go bad. Tomato sauce can be purchased at the store, but it’s also super easy to make your own! Interested? Give our Herb Tomato Sauce recipe a try!
Herb Tomato Sauce
- 2 cans Whole Tomatoes
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 White Onion Roughly chopped
- 4 cloves Garlic Peeled & crushed
- 1/3 cup Fresh Basil Roughly chopped
- 1 tsp Dried Oregano
- 1 tsp Dried Thyme

In a large pot over medium-high heat add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Once the oil is hot add the chopped white onion, sauteeing for 5 minutes until the onions starts to become translucent. Add in the crushed garlic and saute for an additional minute until the garlic becomes fragrant.
Add in the tomatoes, crushing the tomatoes by hand as you add them to the pot. Tomatoes should be crushed to resemble a slightly chunky pasta sauce.
Add in the basil, oregano, thyme and white sugar. Stir pasta until everything is well incorporated and reduce heat to a simmer.
Add in salt to taste and stir once again.
Cover sauce and allow to simmer, for 1 hour until the pasta sauce starts to thicken. Stir sauce occasionally.
Once the sauce has thickened, remove from heat.
Serve and Enjoy! Or once the sauce cools down add to mason jars and store for later.
