Easy, Simple Tomato Sauce

This sauce recipe is so easy. Like, it’s so easy we’re shaking our heads at its simplicity while simultaneously trying to tell everyone in the world about it. This is the kind of recipe you want to keep in your back pocket for a quick meal (hello, fresh pasta sauce!) for your pizza night (duh!), for dipping grilled cheese or a late night run to grab some Crazy Bread (we know you’ve done it before!)

This recipe doesn’t need to be cooked. It can enter your mind, and be ready for use in less than 5 minutes. This means there’s no reason to ever use store bought pizza sauce ever again.

Our friend, Chef Brandon, shared this genius with us, and we are forever changed. While we loved the flavor, simplicity and freshness, it was the moment he blended it all up in a 32 oz deli container, we knew he was our kind of person! Keep a batch of this tasty sauce in the fridge and you’ll be ready for pizza night every night.
