Super Simple & Fresh Tomato Sauce

With tomatoes in season, there's no better time to make this 
easy and light, fresh tomato sauce. So good!

It couldn't be easier to throw together. 

I served it over ricotta and spinach tortellini with some fresh
grated Parmesan cheese and basil. 

Having leftover tortellini is a bonus because I use it for one of my favorite salads.

Super Simple & Fresh Tomato Sauce

2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic
Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
Salt and pepper
5 large tomatoes, rough chop
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp sugar
Handful of fresh basil

Cut tomatoes into big chunks and blend until smooth.

Heat a large skillet on medium heat. Add olive oil, onion with a pinch of salt, pepper and red pepper flakes; saute until it starts to soften. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes more. Stir in pureed tomatoes, Italian seasoning and sugar. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, 20-25 minutes or until desired consistency. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if necessary. Stir in fresh basil.
