MethodBoil water on medium to high heat. When making tomato sauce it is very important to remember to skin tomatoes, otherwise the skins become tough in the sauce leaving a less than enjoyable taste. I have found the easiest way to do this is to simply place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for no longer than 1 minute
Immediately pour tomatoes and boiling water into an ice bath, to stop them tomatoes from cooking. Doing this will also help you to easily peel skin
Add olive oil to a pot and saute garlic and onions over medium heat Add in carrots and continue to saute
In the meantime peel the tomatoes and discard skins. Cut tomatoes into quarters and squeeze out seeds(warning this part can get a bit messy).
Once tomatoes have been cut and cleaned of seeds add the tomatoes to the olive oil, garlic, onions, and carrots
Using a fork gently squeeze down on tomatoes to flatten. As tomatoes continue to cook the sauce will become less chunky as the cooked tomatoes omit liquid. Add in tomato paste and stir it into tomato mixture. Sprinkle mixtures with herbs of your choosing (I used parsley and oregano, adding chopped basil will also add a delicious flavor to the sauce).
Let sauce come to a boil and then immediately let simmer for approximately 30 minutes. Add Salt and pepper as needed.
Feel free to puree sauce once done if you prefer a smoother texture. I prefer a chunkier tomato sauce so I usually leave it as is.
