Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce.


  • 5 ripe medium - large tomatoes
  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1 T Kosher Salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 4 sprigs of Italian parsley, only the leaves
  • 1/4 cup good Olive Oil


  1. Start your pasta
  2. Peel the tomatoes
  3. Remove as many of the seeds as possible (Considered the most bitter part of the tomato)
  4. Lightly blend all ingredients except the olive oil. 
  5. You want to leave some chunks of tomatoes to provide texture.
  6. Stir in the olive oil.  If you blend it too much it will leave the mixture cloudy
  7. Pour over hot pasta

Serve with bread, cheese and a fresh salad.
