If you have a home garden you must have an abundance of tomatoes coming in now – as I do. You can make this 3 ingredient tomato sauce can be in 12 minutes!

Although I love to eat them raw, I had so many I had to cook some of them. I quickly whipped up this amazing tomato sauce with just 3 ingredients and it all happened in 12 minutes!

If you do not write or receive a weekly meal plan, you may have some days in which dinner time creeps up on you… unprepared. I hate those days!

Today was just such a day, but I had an idea to use my homegrown tomatoes in a quick sauce, over chopped beef or chopped turkey.

Quick Homegrown Tomatoes

The recipe calls for only 3 ingredients that you are sure to have on hand, onions, garlic and tomatoes. You can also add fresh or dried herbs to further spice it up!
