  • 6 cups quartered cherry tomatoes, or fresh tomato cut into bite sized pieces. About 2 lbs.
  • 1 tsp finely minced fresh garlic
  • 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place the tomatoes in a large bowl and crush with your hands until the juice and seeds separate from the outer part of the tomato. Only about 6 medium-pressure squeezes with your hands.

  2. Add the garlic and the olive oil and toss together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Serve on pasta with some fresh basil and parmesan cheese (vegan if desired). 

Recipe Notes

If you have time, let the sauce sit on the counter for a few hours so the flavors meld together. The sauce gets better the longer it sits.
