This classic sauce serves 4 people, and it will get you away from using the store bought Pomodoro Sauce, Marinara Sauce, or Arrabiata Sauce. The Store bought stuff typically has lots of preservatives, sodium, oil, sugar, or even High Fructose Corn Syrup. This Home made option is much healthier for you and has all fresh, real ingredients in it. This is an important step to take if you are trying to make healthy choices with your food / eating.


Tomatoes 15 , chop
Garlic cloves 5 Large , chop
Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
Basil 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , chop
Ground pepper 1/2 Teaspoon
