DIY cherry tomato sauce!
In an effort to stay away from processed/premade pasta sauces, I developed this delicious recipe over time (trial and error) and now it's a staple. It's really easy and delicious and the best part is: this sauce can be made by mostly using things you already probably have lying around the kitchen!
What you need:
1 tsp fresh ground sea salt
1 tbsp Italian style herbs/seasoning (basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, thyme)
2 tbsp minced garlic (or to taste)
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup olive oil
1 pint washed and drained cherry tomatoes
Add all the ingredients to a pan over medium heat and allow to come to a simmer. Allow cherry tomatoes to simmer covered (stirring occasionally) until the skins start to 'pop' and then start to mash the tomatoes with the back of your spatula. Once all the tomatoes are mashed/have popped, continue to simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Add spices/seasoning to taste. Serve with quinoa, rice, on pizza or your fav pasta!
