Chunky No Cook Tomato Basil Sauce

Chunky No Cook Tomato Basil Sauce
From: Grilled Pizzas & Piadinas

Hands-on time: 5 minutes

Makes 2 cups

2 cloves garlic, minced
8 large basil leaves
1 ½ lb/680g fresh tomatoes or (as I did 1 28oz/794g can good tomatoes – my favorite fire roasted crushed tomatoes)
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp kosher salt
¾ tsp freshly ground pepper (I added some chili pepper flakes too)
½ tsp sugar

1. Place garlic and basil leaves in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse a few times to keep it chunky.

3. Refrigerate for at least one hour for the flavors to blend.
