Fresh Tomato Sauce

It’s gardening season and so many of us have heaps of tomatoes at our fingertips.  If you aren’t a gardener, the farmers markets and roadside stands are brimming with fresh produce options, tomatoes included!

Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and vitamins, including lycopene, vitamins A and C and folic acid.  These nutrients promote heart health, help combat the free radicals known to cause cancer and may help to regulate blood sugar in diabetics.

Fresh tomato sauce is a great way to use your tomato stock and enjoy a sauce full of flavor that you just can’t get out of a can.  This recipe is simple and quick and is excellent over either your favorite 100% whole wheat pasta or spaghetti squash!
