During the week when I am running around with the kids, working and trying to stay on top of my mountain of laundry, trying to get dinner on the table can be a challenge. But here is a quick and easy sauce that anyone can make and is so much better for your family than jarred sauce – not to mention the superior taste.
Have a look and try it out…..
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion finely chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
5.5 cups of tomato puree
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped*1 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped*
1 teaspoon of salt
dash of red pepper (This is subject to taste and depends on how spicy you like your sauce. You can skip this step, add more or even substitute with black pepper.)
1. In a large, deep skillet heat the olive oil on medium heat.
2. Add the onion and saute for about 5-10 minutes until onions are translucent.
3. Add the garlic and stir, cook for about 1 minute, do not let the garlic brown.
4. Add the tomato puree, then add the fresh basil, fresh parsley, salt and pepper, cook uncovered over low heat until the sauce thickens, about 30 – 45 minutes. Stir occasionally so that the sauce does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Now wasn’t that easy???? Enjoy and Buon appetito!
