This sauce is super easy to make! I use it as a base for my spaghetti and a multitude of other dishes.

I love basil. I love the way it smells. Wash and julienne your basil. Add it to the sauce. Now use it with whatever your heart desires. In lasagna, spaghetti and it is also very good on homemade pizza:) Enjoy!
Have to run out to the garden for garlic..Tomatoes are not producing yet, but boy did I plant a lot! Sauce of any kind is heaven especially when you can make your own. I prefer freezing basic tomato juice in quarts and then cook it down when I am making sauce. Ahhh fresh basil..always the best!!

Good idea on the freezing. I am so very new to gardening, mine are not producing yet either but when they do....yum:)
