Top Rated Tomato Sauce Recipes

Cherry Tomato Sauce
This has to be one of the easiest tomato sauces to make. It’s the ultimate beginner’s tomato sauce because there’s no chopping. All you basically have to do is throw the tomatoes into a pan, cover them, and wait until they all burst. One thing to note is the seed factor. You’ll find many Italian chefs who say they would never remove seeds from a tomato sauce. If you agree, this is a sauce for you. Seeding isn’t an option here, but you don’t really need to — the seeds, while numerous, are hardly bitter. Click here to see It's Time for a Cherry Tomato Fiesta — 11 Great Recipes.

This recipe is inspired by puttanesca sauce, which, according to many sources, was a dish that Neapolitan prostitutes in the mid-20thcentury served to their customers. Is that true or just legend? I have no idea, but I know it’s not that backstory that would tempt me to make the sauce. I prefer to emphasize all of its zesty, bold, and briny elements. Serve the sauce with pasta; spoon some sauce into a baking dish, nestle cod or halibut fillets in it, and bake; or grill pita or other flat bread and top it with the sauce. You can customize the sauce as you like. I can’t handle more than a modicum of chile heat, so I’ve been cautious here. But if you can stand the fire, add more chile than the recipe calls for. If you like tangy flavors, add more olives, and for more salt and umami, increase the amount of anchovies. About those anchovies: Please don’t skip them unless you’re a vegetarian. They add so much to this — and any — dish. Click here to read more about sauces.

Tomatoes
When plum tomatoes are no longer available at the farmers’ market, I turn to this easy, yet still delicious basic sauce (sugo di pomodoro semplice). Using superior-quality canned tomatoes and good olive oil makes all the difference in this recipe. I use diced imported Italian tomatoes packed in their natural juices, which yield a fresher-tasting sauce than one made from tomatoes in heavy puree, which gives the sauce the flavor of tomato paste/purée.
