Tomato Basil Reduction

Tomato Basil Reduction

  • What's in it?

Canned, chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, salt

  • Where did I find it?

I was making a recipe that called for pizza sauce and I didn't have any on hand, but I did have canned chopped tomatoes and some fresh basil.  So I decided to puree the basil and tomatoes and cook down until I got a thick texture like pizza sauce.  

  • Why do I like it?

This recipe is so easy to prepare using ingredients commonly found in the pantry.  I freeze fresh basil so that I always have some on hand.  There are no objectionable ingredients like sugar, preservatives or other unpronounceable words.
