Easy Fresh Tomato Sauce #Recipe!

Hey Everyone!! :-)

This is a really easy, light tomato sauce you can throw together in a few minutes to serve over pasta. It only takes a few minutes, so you won't be stuck standing over a hot stove for long in the summer heat.

4-5 tomatoes chopped (about 3-4 cups total volume)
1 yellow summer squash or zucchini chopped
1 20oz sliced button mushrooms
2-3 onions chopped fine
7-8 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
1/2 cup water (if needed)
Salt and pepper to taste

Add the onions, salt and pepper, and olive oil to a deep-sided skillet and saute until translucent. Add the mushrooms, garlic, and zucchini or squash and cook until soft. Add the tomatoes and water (if more liquid is needed) and stir together. Simmer for a couple minutes until the tomatoes start to break down. Stir in the basil and then remove from heat. Stir in the parsley and serve over your favorite cooked pasta.

Buon Appetito!
