Spaghetti Sauce

Barbara Leeson


I peel the tomatoes by cutting the cores out and making an X on the bottom of each.Then I put them into boiling water for twenty seconds, then into a bowl of ice water to cool then down. The skins should slide right off. I chop the garlic into larger pieces (about the size of a kernal of corn) so it will have a sweeter taste rather than having a strong flavor to it in this sauce. I do not usually use the really large basil leaves,unless they have a really good scent to them, so I try to pick out a package that has the least large ones in it. This is my own recipe and it is very tasty!
