With its intense flavor, this year-round tomato sauce is the perfect addition to any pizza or pasta recipe.
Recipe yields about 400ml (1 2/3 cups) sauce.
I know 4 tablespoons of oil may seem like a lot on its own, but they really make this sauce what it is and get completely lost once you put it on a pizza or pasta.
I intentionally leave out all the herbs when making this. I love to have a batch of the sauce on hand and depending on what we have for dinner, I can use one small batch for 2-3 different meals, all in one week.
Use on pizza: When making pizza, simply spread this sauce all over the dough and sprinkle generously with dried oregano.
Use with pasta: You can use this sauce when making spaghetti, pasta bakes or even lasagna. Simply add freshly chopped basil and parsley to the sauce. You can also try other spices like rosemary, thyme, … depending on what your taste is like and the season of the year.
You could also mix a tablespoon or two of the sauce into your rice when making risotto.
