Have one taste of this sauce and you will never look back. The first time I made this sauce it blew me away and my husband’s exact words….We are never buying pre-made sauce again. It is perfect on spaghetti, Chik’n Parmesan, and pizza.
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 28 ounce can Organic whole tomatoes with juices
½ small red onion
4 garlic cloves
5 basil leaves
Red pepper flakes, to taste
Pinch of Italian seasoning
1heaping tablespoon Organic sugar
In a food processor, chop the onion. In a large skillet over medium heat sauté onion until translucent. Add the garlic using a garlic press and cook until fragrant. Season with salt & pepper, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning.
Add tomatoes to the food processor and pulse until desired consistency. Carefully add to the skillet and season with salt & pepper. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove cover, stir, and simmer to reduce to desired thickness. Add sugar at the end of cooking, taste and add more if desired.
Note: Look for balance in the consistency of the sauce, it should be fluid, but not overly wet.
Toss it with Quinoa spaghetti for a light & delicious lunch!
For the Organic tomatoes I used Muir brand & for the sugar I used Florida Crystals
