I’m Italian, so of course Pasta Sauce was one of the first things I learned how to make from scratch. This is a weekly dinner for us, and sometimes lunch too! haha. This recipe includes instructions for the Instant Pot as well as the Slow Cooker.Grab the ingredients needed and let’s get started.
Start out by chopping the onion and garlic. Start by chopping the onion and garlic. Turn the Instant Pot to sauté mode. Add the olive oil when the pot is hot. Sauté the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.
Fresh tomatoes are always better, of course… but you can use diced tomatoes too! If using fresh tomatoes, add 3 cups of water.Close the lid and turn the knob to sealing. Cook on HIGH pressure for 10 minutes.
When the timer is up, quickly release the pressure and remove the lid.
Blend with an Immersion Blender (I love this one!)
