Garden Fresh Pasta Sauce

This is a wonderful recipe and uses 1/2 of the roasted veggies from above. This recipe makes 25 servings of sauce!!!!! I will show you below how to freeze the sauce for future use...

1/2 of the Roasted Veggies from above
1 6-lb Can of Crushed Tomatoes
1 Tablespoons Oregano
Fresh Cracked Pepper
2 Tablespoons of Kosher Salt
2 Cups of Water
1 Cup Fresh Basil

Split the veggies from above... 

I buy these at Sam's Club.... they are about $ 2.25 a can!!!

I use the same roasting pan that I used for the veggies... 

Add the Oregano, Salt and Pepper...

Add the Basil... 

Simmer for about 30 minutes... 

Using a hand blender...

Blend to your liking.... some people like it chunky... I blend it smooth.
Let it cool.

I use a pitcher.... stick the bag in the pitcher to ladle the sauce into the bag. 
The pitcher system keeps the process clean. 

Bring the pitcher to the sauce (keeps things clean)

5 Ladle fulls will feed a family of 5.
Adjust accordingly.  If you are only doing a 
couple of servings.... use a sandwich bag and 
use a cup or glass instead of a pitcher. 

Take the air out of the bag.... 

Lay flat... 

Makes 5 batches of 5 servings each.

Put on a baking sheet and freeze flat... 

Once the sauce is frozen... label it and stand it up in your freezer.
