Tomato Sauce

I don’t buy jarred sauce anymore, not since I’ve been doing the 21 day FIX.  Most jarred sauces are filled with preservatives and added SUGAR!  So, I had to figure something else out.

And, this recipe for a very SIMPLE TOMATO Sauce from Scratch doesn’t get much easier and my kids LOVE it!  I used to make it with DICED tomatoes, but my little one doesn’t like the chunky tomatoes, so now whatever tomatoes I have, I put in the blender for a few quick seconds first.

1 can of whole tomotoes – blended (make sure tomatoes and water are the only ingredients)

3 cloves of Garlic

2 tsp Olive Oil

Fresh Basil

Fresh Oregano

 

Heat the olive oil and crushed garlic.  You can even add onions if you want, but I don’t love onions.  Then just add the tomatoes and stir.  A few minutes later add the seasonings to taste.  Simmer on low for about 15-20 minutes.  We like to add the meatballs right in there if we are having them.  I usually throw in some home-made frozen turkey meatballs for about 10 minutes.  Cooks right in with the sauce.  YUMMY!!!

Serve over your favorite pasta or vegetable!
