How to Make Yellow Tomato Sauce-Homemade


  1. Heat olive oil and all ingredients ,except the tomatoes; sauté for 5 minutes, making sure not to brown the vegetables. You can peel tomatoes if you like-but I don't.Or you can use 4 or 5 containers of the yellow cherry tomatoes-no peeling there!
  2. Add the tomatoes and rice wine vinegar. Reduce heat and simmer for at least 30 minutes- the longer you leave it the better the flavor.
    (if making this for pasta- cook the amount you want now-8 minutes in boiling water-drain-rinse)
  3. Roughly blend the sauce with a hand blender, then toss the cooked spaghetti in the the sauce.
    Before serving garnish pasta with some chopped basil leaves and yellow cherry tomatoes. Enjoy.
    Remember this sauce freezes well.
  4. Crock pot version:
    Throw every thing in the crock pot and cook for 1 hour.
  5. Blend with hand blender, until smooth.
  6. Ready to use with the pasta.
