1. Making a simple Tomato Sauce yourself

For the simple tomato sauce you need either canned tomatoes whole or in cubes, or strained tomatoes.

I like to use whole canned tomatoes because I love the tomato pieces in the sauce. But that remains a matter of taste, it is up to you which kind you use.

The remaining ingredients are onions, garlic, white wine, salt, pepper, sugar. Optional thyme, basil, Italian herb mixture and tomato paste. In the best case the delicious tomato sauce consists of 7-8 ingredients including pasta.

3. Cook Tomato Sauce yourself, some Chef Tips

You can caramelise the onions and garlic with a little sugar after sweating for a short time. This will give the sauce more flavour later on.

Let the tomato sauce simmer for at least 15 minutes, so that the taste develops better.

Tomato paste brings strength to the sauce, but takes away fresh tomato paste. Therefore use tomato paste carefully and with feeling.
