Another fantastic recipe from our great family friend George (who you can follow on Instagram here)!  He sent over this tomato sauce and we absolutely had to try it. With just a few simple ingredients this sauce is so flavorful from the sweet tomatoes, spicy chilis, and bright fresh garlic.

This sauce is perfect when when you want a hearty sauce that pairs well with a thick or stuffed pasta. It’s also bold and flavorful enough to take on spaghetti or linguine.  It’s vegetarian, gluten-free, and packed with lots of veggies and nutrients.

What’s In This Tomato Sauce with Mushrooms Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Butter – you can use a plant-based version if desired.
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Mushrooms – I used crimini.
  • Calabrian chili peppers – which have a spicy smoky flavor, and are a great addition to this pasta!
  • San Marzano Diced Tomatoes – an essential in any good tomato sauce is getting the best quality canned tomatoes you can find! I always use San Marzano tomatoes for sauces, especially in dishes where tomatoes are the star.
  • Tomato Paste: thickens the sauce with a deep bold tomato flavor.  I only use a no salt added tomato paste, so you can control the amount of salt in the dish.
  • Salt
  • Parmesan Cheese – gives that extra bit of flavor and richness to this dish. Whether you use a sharp real cheese parmesan, or a vegan version, adding a little extra into the sauce (and for garnish) makes this dish delish.
