Happy Sunday friends. It’s a lazy day here. But I did get to cook a little bit!

Tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, butter, salt, pepper. What does that equal? A super simple and delicious tomato sauce. Heat olive oil and butter. Brown some garlic, add a can of tomatoes. Simmer, crush, season, done. That’s it.

Simple Tomato Sauce

  • 1 28 oz. can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil and butter in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and cook until lightly browned. Add can of tomatoes and let cook for around 8 minutes. Using a fork or other utensil, crush the tomatoes and let cook down for another 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste

A few other things: Feel free to use crushed tomatoes, but I like using the whole ones; crushing them is fun! I also added around a teaspoon of red pepper flakes because I like everything spicy!

This sauce can really be turned into anything you like: add more garlic, add some fresh herbs, add cream, whatever your little heart desires.
