Three Ingredient Tomato Sauce

Serves: 4

So what’s so good about this sauce? Well, in short, just about everything. Oil, salt, tomatoes, and time are all it takes to create the most vibrant tomato sauce you’ve likely ever tasted.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


4 pounds ripe tomatoes, preferably roma, stem and core removed
1 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons sea salt
fresh basil optional


In a large pot add all ingredients over medium/low heat. Once bubbling start smashing tomatoes with the back of a spoon to help them break down. Allow to cook for 30 minutes, stirring often to avoid scorching. Sauce should be a thick sauce. If it is too thin continue cooking for a few more minutes. If you're planning on adding fresh basil, throw 3-5 leaves into the pot. I prefer to roughly blend mine with a hand wand once finished, but that is optional. Store in an air tight container for up to a week or for future use.

The best way to serve it is tossed with al dente pasta and lots of fresh parmesan cheese.
