Tomato Sauce

Tomato Sauce

Adapted from the tomato sauce of José Andrés via Vegetables Unleashed.

Every month or so I order a 6-pack of 28oz cans of Cento San Marzano Organic Tomatoes; while I have dreams of growing and canning these myself some day, these are exceptional tomatoes.

This order usually coincides with the realization that only one or two sauces from the last batch remain.

On the Sunday following receipt of this delivery, I make sauce.

Each batch creates enough sauce for around 6 pasta dinners as well as 8 pizzas.

Each serving is portioned out into a freezer-ready deli container (these are great!) - for pasta dinners, fill the 16oz container up near the bottom rim; pizzas are half that amount (for 2 pizzas).

This will keep in the fridge for about a week, so I usually keep one pasta portion and one pizza portion in the fridge and the rest in dated portions in the freezer aside from the last remaining portion in the pan which will be used for dinner immediately.
