Homemade Tomato Sauce

I saw a post for making red sauce on one of my favorite recipe sites The Smitten Kitchen and I had to try it.  Of course, I also did it in my own unique way.  Which includes not really measuring~ but pouring ingredients into my hand, trying something different, etc.  The recipe I tried was Naked Tomato Sauce (kinda a fun name, huh?).  It was pretty good but a lot of work.  Maybe it would get easier if I made it a few times, but I think I will save it for when I am bored or have time on my hands (insert hysterical laughing!  as if those two things would ever happen!) to make it again.  But I will share some pictures I took of my sauce making.  Also, I am really glad I tried!  I can now say that I made homemade sauce at least once.  Life is full of experiences and I never want to have to say "I wish I had done_________-"  (fill in the blank).... so check that one off the bucket list, baby!


  1. I made homemade sauce once and thought "THis is for the birds!" Maybe someday when my kids have left home and I have a huge garden of tomatoes. Maybe.

  2. I've recently decided to make my own. This is not encouraging, lol.

    I think I'm going to use canned tomato sauce. The whole reason for making it is because no one in my family can handle the chunks found in normal sauce.
