If you have never made your own tomato sauce, this is a great starter recipe. But even if you’re a pro, this sauce is a great base on which to riff. Try it in an easy chicken parm recipe.
Game plan: If you’ve canned your own tomatoes, they can be used here. Just put the tomatoes and juices in a food processor and pulse until they are evenly broken up and incorporated, then proceed with the recipe below.
If you can, make this sauce up to 24 hours in advance (keep it covered in the refrigerator and rewarm as needed), because the flavors improve with time.
