You will fall in love with this velvety, Home-Style Tomato Sauce ready in minutes. An authentic Italian recipe from our kitchen to yours. Buon Appetito!


- 28 ounces pureed tomatoes

- 2 teaspoons minced garlic

- 2 tablespoons minced onion

- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

- 1/2 cup water

- 1/4 cup white wine

- Salt and pepper

* If you would like a spicy sauce, add cayenne pepper or red chili flakes to suit your own taste.


1.  In sauce pan add olive oil, garlic and onion and cook over medium heat for approximately 2 minutes or just until the garlic begins to sizzle.

2.  Add pureed tomatoes, water and white wine. Stir well, cover and let simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.

3.  Uncover and taste sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer approximately 8 more minutes, uncovered, or until the sauce has reduced by 1/3 to 1/2.




4.  Remove from heat and serve over your favorite pasta or use as a basic pizza sauce.


Reducing the sauce by 1/3 will give you a thinner, lighter sauce. Reducing the sauce by 1/2 will give you a thicker sauce.
