Tomato sauce

We are going to a friends place for dinner tonight, and this morning I am going to make some lasagna, with homemade noodles!

Below is my all purpose tomato sauce... keep in mind that I don't think cooking is all about rules and hierarchy... so when I don't have an ingredient, I go without or make up a new one!

All purpose tomato sauce
  • olive oil to saute the onions and garlic
  • 2 medium onions finely diced
  • 2 cans of crushed tomatoes
  • 5-8 garlic cloves crushed, and chopped finely
  • dried oregano
  • a few splashes of balsamic vinegar
  • freshly ground pepper
  • organic sugar a heaping tbsp
  • sea generous with it, to taste!

saute onions and garlic and oregano. add the rest.
simmer for 10 minutes or 2 hours, the longer the tastier!
hint: use a little water in your empty canned tomatoes and give it a swish, and pour that into the sauce, no waste!


  1. Sounds great when's dinner

  2. sadly, i've never actually made fresh pasta...we make ravioli at work...but seeing as i only work in the service kitchen and not the prep kitchen i never get to do it (and they have BRAINS in them...sheep's i think). i should really try it out sometime...but i don't have a dough roller at home...are they expensive?

  3. this was yummie! and fun to photograph!
