Fast Tomato Sauce Tuesday

5 Nov

One of the most understated vegetables is the tomato.

I eat so many I should be red.

Meatless meals at least three to four times a week is not so bad and this is one my Mom used to make every week.

Spaghetti Marinara

One pound of spaghetti

Six cloves of chopped garlic

Eight tablespoons of olive oil

Two cans of diced tomatoes including the liquid.

1/2 teaspoon of salt

3/4 teaspoon of dried oregano

eight basil leaves

one tablespoon of sugar

1/4 teaspoon of red pepper

Cook the pasta according to the package directions

Heat the olive oil

Saute the garlic till light brown

Add the tomatoes and spices

Bring to a boil and then simmer to reduce till slightly thickened.

Add the cooked pasta and heat till it is hot

Serve with grated cheese and crunchy bread.

Fabulous, Fast and inexpensive.

If you want you can add shrimp but I love this plain.
