Homemade Tomato Sauce, May 26th 2011

This delicious healthy tomato sauce is super fun to make! I've made it in a zucchini pasta bake, but we usually have it tossed with coloured kamut rotini with a simple side salad.



4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 onion, chopped *you can use more, I just don't like onion very much

1/2 c. coloured bell peppers, chopped

a handful of mushrooms, diced

1 tsp. dried oregano

1/4 tsp. basil

1/4 tsp. thyme

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 can crushed tomatoes

6-8 fresh tomatoes



In large pot, saute the garlic, onions, peppers, mushrooms & spices in oil on medium heat until onions are translucent. Add tomatoes. Cover with lid & simmer on medium-low 15-30 minutes, stirring occasional. If sauce is too thick, thin it with a bit of stock or water.


Remember pasta sauce gets tastier as it sits. It's a great make-ahead recipe. Or you can do like we do & have leftovers for lunch the next day.


The salad is spinach leaves tossed with sesame seeds, soy nuts & a dressing of grapeseed oil, balsamic vinaigrette, rosemary & a pinch of salt.
