How do I make tomato sauce from scratch using fresh tomatoes?

 

Here is one simple recipe I use:

1 Tbsp olive oil
4 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored
Small yellow onion, finely diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the garlic and continue cooking until fragrant, about a minute more. Stir in tomatoes and their juices. Cook until sauce reaches a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Add salt and pepper as needed and stir in the basil.
