  • 1 large Texas 1015 yellow onion, diced
  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pounds ground beef
  • 1 gallons (or more) fresh mixed-variety cherry tomatoes, such as Yellow Pear, Sun Gold, and Supersweet 100
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce

Jessica’s Easy Texas Cherry Tomato Pasta Sauce Directions

  1. Add the olive oil and butter to a large skillet and heat on medium-high until the butter is melted.
  2. Add the onion and sauté until almost soft and clear, then add the garlic and sauté for 1 or 2 minutes more.
  3. Add the beef and cook until it’s no longer pink—stirring often.
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes, cover and cook on medium-high heat—stirring occasionally. When the cherry tomatoes start to burst, use a potato masher to mash them in the skillet.
  5. Add the tomato sauce, oregano, rosemary, thyme, basil, salt and pepper.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until the sauce reaches the desired consistency.
  7. Serve over pasta. Sauce may be doubled and frozen for easy weekday meals.
