Ingredients

For the tomato sauce

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 head of garlic , peeled and crushed
  • 10 lb [4.5 kg] of very ripe tomatoes , rinsed and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper (optional)

Instructions

For the tomato sauce

  • In a large thick-bottom pot heat the oil over very low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until the garlic is very soft. Add the tomato and pepper.
  • Cover and simmer until the tomatoes are very soft.
  • Remove from the heat and let them cool down.
  • Blend until it turns into a soft paste.
  • Separate into 1-cup portions and freeze.

Notes

This is a substitute for tomato sauce and paste for cooking. I use the whole tomatoes because the peel gives it more color.
You can use San Marzano, cherry tomatoes, or basically any kind of very red, very ripe tomatoes you can find.
Add more or fewer ingredients as you like, you can make a pre-seasoned tomato sauce, or even make it spicy!
