Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 2 cups
  • 8 ripe vine tomatoes (fresh from the garden)
  • 3 tbsp of Olive Oil
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • ½ white onion diced
  • 1 tsp minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Cut tomatoes into triangular wedges and place in Large freezer ziploc bag
  3. Add 2 tbsp of Olive oIl to the bag
  4. Shake bag so that Olive oil distributes evenly over the tomatoes
  5. Spread tomatoes out on a large baking pan
  6. Generously sprinkle garlic salt over the tomatoes
  7. Lightly Sprinkle pepper over tomato wedges
  8. Place pan in oven and let cook for 45 minutes
  9. Put tomatoes in blender and pulse 3 times ( I prefer to have small chunks in my can puree longer for a smoother, creamier sauce)
  10. In a medium frying pan/ or sauce pan heat 1 tbs olive oil and then add diced onion and minced garlic,
  11. Cook over medium heat for a couple minutes while stirring until onions start to carmalize (They get a glossy transparent look to them)
  12. Add the pureed tomatoes
  13. Add Red Wine Vinegar, lemon juice, Italian Seasoning and pepper to taste
  14. Let simmer over low heat stirring occasionally for about 10-15 minutes (If you do not have a non stick pan then stir often to prevent sauce from sticking to pan and burning)
  15. Then serve over your favorite noodles, chicken, or even add it to your lasagna.
I highly recommend doubling or tripling or even quadrupling this recipe and then jarring it for later. You are definitely going to want more
