Quick, Fresh Pasta Sauce

Vegan, Vegetarian
The Alessio family is pretty serious about their sauce. Jen grew up watching her grandmother cook pasta sauce on the stove all day. Although a 4 hour marinara is delicious, sometimes a quick, fresh sauce is a bit more practical, especially in a van. Here’s our version of a garden fresh pasta sauce.

  • Food processor


  • 4-5 Fresh tomatoes large
  • 1 Onion
  • 1-2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tbsp Dry herbs
  • 1 handful Fresh basil


  • Start by sautéing some onions, garlic and your dry herbs. Let them cook on low/medium heat.
  • Boil water (for your big tomatoes- san marzanos, etc).
  • Throw the big tomatoes into the boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until the skin starts to break apart.
  • Scoop out the tomatoes and carefully peel the skin off.
  • Blend the tomatoes once they have cooled off a bit and add them to the onions that you have cooking on the stove.
  • Hope you had some water boiling for the pasta.. that was fast!
