Mrs Laguda’s Tomato ‘Gravy’

Savor your tomato harvest even after summer ends with a simple yet flavorful tomato sauce! This is also a great way to use up the “extra” tomatoes in your kitchen.
We recommend plum or Roma tomatoes because they generally have less moisture and seeds than other varieties, resulting in a deeper tomato flavor.
With just a handful of fresh ingredients, you can create a homemade tomato sauce that is rich in both taste and history.

This cherished family recipe was submitted by Mrs. Laguda, a community member from Laguda Tailors in Ambler, PA. Her “gravy” is praised by clients, friends, and family alike for its delicious and traditional flavor!

You can find the Lagudas @tonylagudaformalwear on Instagram.
