Homemade Tomato Sauce
Makes about 1-2 cups
10 medium tomatoes, peeled
2 medium onions, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
A handful of fresh parsley, chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp red wine vinegar
Dash of olive oil (optional)*
*If using oil, you can saute onions in it before adding all the ingredients to the saucepan. They will enhance flavour. However, if you do not want to use oil just follow the directions below.
1) Prepare a large saucepan. Chop peeled tomatoes into small chunks. Add onions, garlic, parsley, oregano, basil, smoked paprika, ground pepper and salt. Cover and set over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally.
2) When the mixture comes to boil, lower the heat, uncover and let simmer until the liquid evaporates. Stir occasionally. Just before removing from heat, add red wine vinegar.
3) Let cool completely and serve with pasta or pizza or whatever you like.
