Fresh Tomato Sauce


  • cheesecloth bag
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup celery tops, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 cups ripe tomatoes, finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 4 whole black peppercorns


Saute' garlic and onion in oil; add celery, green pepper, tomatoes, sugar, salt and water. Tie bay leaf, peppercorns and cloves in cheesecloth bag; then add. Cook slowly, uncovered, 20 minutes. Remove spice bag. Press mixture through a coarse sieve and stir in tomato paste and heat.


Note: Instead of a sieve, you can also use a blender to give the sauce a very smooth consistency. Also, if you use a blender, the bay leaf, peppercorns and cloves may be left in for a spicier sauce.
