My favorite way to use garden fresh tomatoes and basil is by making and freezing spaghetti sauce. The flavor of this simple recipe is out of this world, once you try it, you’ll never go back! Garden fresh simply can’t be beat!

5 gallon zip lock bags of frozen homegrown tomatoes or fresh equivalent
1/2 c olive oil
6-8 cloves garlic
2 cans tomato paste
following spices to taste (can use dried or fresh or both) measurements are approximate:
1/4 c parsley
1/4 c basil
1/4 c oregano
1 TB salt
fresh ground pepper
Optional- 2 cups shredded zucchini
Peel tomatoes. Puree in blender or mash with potato masher. Brown garlic in olive oil. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, spices and bring to boil. Boil uncovered for 3-8 hours, tasting periodically and adjusting spices as needed. The longer you boil, the thicker and more flavorful the sauce will be!
