A basic tomato sauce can be at the heart of so many great meals: pizza, pasta dishes, sautéed vegetables and soups, just to name a few. Take advantage of the summer harvest to stock your freezer with this sauce and you'll be one step closer to a garden-fresh meal.

put 3/4 teaspoon salt instead

put 3/4 teaspoon salt instead of the 1 1/2 teaspoon and it only 111.5 g of sodium.

223mg sodium per 1/2 c.

223mg sodium per 1/2 c. serving is about 40% of an off the shelf prepared sauce.


This is my favorite tomato sauce, and I make a lot since we get boatloads of tomatoes with our CSA farm share. I'll make huge batches of this and freeze it in pint or quart containers. I love that the recipe has lots of onions, garlic, fresh basil and red wine, and browning the tomato paste is a don't-skip step ... so good! I also cheat a little, since I'm too lazy to peel and seed the tomatoes. It is still perfect!
