The Best Cherry Tomato Sauce

This is my absolute favorite cherry tomato sauce. I’m a bit biased, but it’s been made by thousands of people, so trust those people and make it too! Pretty much once you make it, you’ll come back to it time and time again!

This homemade sauce doesn’t require you to simmer over the stove for 2 hours. I really love this creamy sauce over pasta, with lasagna and stuffed shells. It’s also pretty fantastic to add to pizza as a creamy sauce.

The key to this recipe is first we oven roast the tomatoes – oh yeah, baby. Then after that we throw them in a food processor with some fresh basil and season them. Then it’s made! It’s that easy.

Update: This recipe is now available as a slow cooker tomato sauce recipe too!

Tomato Sauce Ingredients

  1. cherry tomatoes
  2. onion powder
  3. basil
  4. garlic powder
  5. salt and pepper

How to Make Cherry Tomato Sauce

Gather your tomatoes, make sure to take the stems off.

Put them in a pan, single layer. I was making a few batches so I had multiple pans.

Drizzle your olive oil over the tomatoes. Take a picture and completely miss the olive oil coming out of the bottle. Oops.

Sprinkle your onion powder over the tomatoes. Take a picture and completely miss the onion powder being sprinkled. Oops.

Bake for 35 minutes until your tomatoes are all wrinkly and bursting.

Let them cool for a few minutes, then put them in the food processor with your other ingredients. Give it a few pulses until creamy, it doesn’t take more than that!

This makes 3 cups of sauce. Feel free to use immediately after, put in the fridge for tomorrow, or freeze (in a freezer bag) for a few months later.

How to Freeze Tomato Sauce

Once the sauce cools down, add the sauce into freezer bags. I like to separate each bag into 2-3 cups of sauce, knowing that’s how much I’ll need fora recipe.

Whenever I freeze sauce, puree, diced/stewed tomatoes, I always put in a freezer bag and lay flat while pressing it out, so it’s as thin as possible. Then once it’s frozen, I stand it up. This saves space and lets you have a better organized deforst, place in the refrigator the night before. Alternatively you could defrost it in the microwave in a few minutes.
