Quick Tomato Sauce Instructions

JAH Quick Tomato Sauce Seasoning

Combine Seasoning.

JAH Quick Tomato Sauce and Seasoning

Combine Broth, Crushed Tomatoes and Ketchup with the above seasoning. Set aside

Tomato Paste and Oil

On medium heat, Heat the oil and Tomato Paste. Mix well and continue to cook until the Oil starts to separate again. About 5 Minutes.

Create a fond on the bottom of the pan that will be lifted up when we add the sauce for more flavor.

JAH Quick Tomato Sauce Simmering

Add the Liquid and Mix. Turn the heat to max. Bring to Boil.


I use one Maggi Bouillon Cubes which are superior in taste as far as broths go in my opinion. Along with 2 Cups of water for the Broth.

Use Chicken Broth for a lighter Sauce or Vegetable Broth for a no meat-based sauce.


I use Crushed Tomatoes although you can use JAH Pizza Sauce base as well, depending on what dish this sauce will be used in.

If using the Pizza Sauce Base then don’t add the salt in this recipe as the Pizza Sauce base will already contain the salt. The Basil however can be included or omitted. I usually include more of it. It just works so well with Tomatoes.

Freezing Quick Tomato Sauce

The Sauce freezes well too. Just place into Ziploc Bags and freeze in 1 cup to 2 cup portions. Any time you want pasta place the frozen Sauce into a saucepan and cover. Turn the heat to medium and let thaw. Ready in about 10 minutes.
