A Simple Tomato Sauce Recipe with Pomi & Giveaway


Congrats to Lenore on winning the case of Pomi tomatoes!

I recently got to try these great tomatoes from Pomi. It’s refreshing to try a product from a company who prides itself in having no preservatives, being low in sodium, using no pesticides or herbicides. These tomatoes are very versatile.

The tomatoes that go into these BPA free containers are grown in Italy and contain NO additives, citric acid, added water or artificial colors.


I emailed my good friend Paula of bell’alimento (her site is amazing by the way) and asked her what her favorite simple tomato sauce recipe was. She said use olive oil, onion and garlic, cook for a little while and add fresh basil at the end. Yummy and you can’t get simpler than this! This sauce is perfect on pasta, as a dipping sauce or even as a pizza sauce.


It’s really that simple to make. In less than 30 minutes, you have a really great tasting and easy to make tomato sauce.

Simple Tomato Sauce Recipe

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil
