Homemade Pasta Sauce

August 4, 2017

If you are someone who enjoys making food from scratch, like I do, then having a go-to homemade pasta sauce at your disposal is absolutely necessary. I don't use canned tomatoes ever because of the potential risk of having BPA leached into my food (the acid in tomatoes makes it particularly vulnerable). Instead, I use the POMI brand Organic tomatoes in the box since fresh in season tomatoes are not always available to me. 


Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce

1 box Pomi Organic Finely Chopped Tomatoes

1 box Pomi Organic Strained Tomatoes

1 tablespoon oil 

2-3 teaspoons salt, or to taste

1 teaspoon black pepper 

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

2 teaspoons dried oregano

3 cloves garlic, crushed or 2 teaspoons jarred garlic 

1-2 teaspoons capers, optional 

Olives, sliced, optional 

1/3 cup pasta water (if not available, use regular water)

Mix all ingredients into a large stockpot. Heat on medium heat until boiling, then reduce to simmer about 40 minutes.
