Basic Tomato Sauce

Makes ~4 Servings

Need a basic, but wholesome tomato pasta sauce in a hurry? Here’s a recipe! Try using it with artisan ravioli!

  • 1/4 cup Carrot, finely diced
  • ¼ cup Celery, finely diced
  • ¾ cup Onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 28oz Whole Canned Tomatoes, pureed or Canned Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Thyme, minced
  • 1 tsp Pimenton/Smoked Paprika (could substitute any Paprika)



Sweat the onions, celery, carrot and garlic in a pan until the onions are clear.

Add the tomatoes/sauce & stir in the thyme and pimenton. Simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Taste for seasoning, add salt & pepper as needed. Serve over pasta as-is, or use as the foundation of a more complicated dish.
