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!  So why not make some fresh tomato sauce?

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!
