This simple stovetop tomato pasta sauce recipe is the perfect way to use fresh tomatoes and basil! This homemade Italian pasta sauce has a rich flavor and is perfect with past. It's easy to make this sauce recipe from scratch in a dutch oven or pot.



3 pounds Fresh Tomatoes, cut into chunks
1 large Yellow Onion, sliced
2 large Carrots, chopped
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup Fresh Basil, chopped
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt


In a dutch oven or large pot on the stovetop over medium heat add the tomatoes, onion, unsalted butter, carrots, basil and sea salt.

Bring to a boil stirring occasionally and then let simmer for 30 minutes uncovered. Stir occasionally to combine the ingredients to make sure everything is cooking down evenly.

Using an immersion blender in the post blend the ingredients until a smooth sauce forms. If you don't have an immersion blender you can carefully use a regular blender or food processor.

Serve immediately over pasta or let cool to room temperature and store in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
