Tomato Sauce from Scratch

Besides fresh tomatoes, this recipe calls for sun-dried tomatoes to be pureed into the sauce. According to blogger Angela of Oh She Glows, this makes a rich, creamy sauce with concentrated flavor. This recipe makes only 1 1/4 cups of sauce so Angela suggests doubling it.

Ingredients:

FOR THE SAUCE (MAKES 1 + 1/4 CUPS):

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 large sweet onion or 1 small yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)

2 large garlic cloves, minced

3 large tomatoes, seeded and diced (about 3 cups diced)

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, minced

1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes (about 6)

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4-1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)

FOR THE NOODLES:

1 medium zucchini, spiralized or julienned or 1 serving cooked pasta or 1/2 cooked spaghetti squash
