Looking for the best homemade tomato sauce recipe ever? Your search ends here. Though it comes together in under 10 minutes (we sure do love a quick and easy recipe), it'll need to sit at room temperature for about an hour before serving. Use it to top a pizza or spread it on bread for Italian bruschetta. It's also delicious tossed with penne. Seeding half the tomatoes keeps the sauce from becoming watery.
