This is a great recipe for tomato sauce that uses cherry tomatoes. The extra skin seems to give a depth that I cannot get from my normal tomato recipes.


Serves: 12 

  • 500g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon diced red chilli
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 pinch Italian seasoning, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat combine the cherry tomatoes, red onion, balsamic vinegar, chilli, garlic, Italian seasoning, sugar, salt and pepper.
  2. Simmer for about 15 minutes then mash the tomatoes to release the juices.
  3. Continue to cook stirring occasionally until the sauce is thick; about 45 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool then cover and refrigerate until needed.

I love this receipe. I have a lot of cherry tomatoes from my veggie patch and was excited to find this receipe. It's simply, required basic everyday ingredients and is so full of taste! It's a must try! I used a tablespoons rather than teaspoons for the garlic and chilli and will do so every time now. - 12 Feb 2012

This really surprised me how quick and tasty this was. I didn't change a thing. No skinning, no puree-ing. I've been eating it with everything!Thanks for a great recipe. - 16 May 2016
