Simple Recipe for 'Famous' 4-Ingredient Tomato Sauce Is a Must-Try

We will never say no to a bowl of pasta with fresh sauce! Nothing really compares to a homemade marinara, but most of us just don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen. TikTok content creator @dannylovespasta shows us how to make an easy, four-ingredient tomato sauce, and it only takes a few minutes!

This is just so much better than anything you can get in a jar! And the recipe really couldn't be easier.

We are just stunned! Homemade sauce cannot be this easy. This simple recipe starts by heating olive oil in a pan. Then, add minced garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, tomato paste, and cherry tomatoes. Continue stewing the cherry tomatoes while the pasta cooks. When the noodles are done, pour a little pasta water in with tomatoes to thicken the sauce. Season it with a pinch of fresh basil from your garden, melt in a bit of Parmesan cheese, and prepare to be delighted. You’ll have a chef-level meal on your table in no time at all! We've been waiting our entire lives for a tomato sauce this simple!

After seeing how painless this was to prepare, the audience was also ditching their store-bought jars of sauce. Viewer @ClaraKoepp, commented, “That looks like some fun pasta! I’ll have to try this." This idea wasn’t new to viewer @Mari, who tells us, “I'm  using grape and cherry tomatoes for a quick sauce." We 're thrilled to have this information now, too.

We're ready to give this recipe a try, and we have no doubt that everyone in our house will be loving it just as much!
