Easy Clean Eating Homemade Spaghetti Sauce-- Minimal prep work!
I wanted to begin making our own homemade pasta sauce to go with our homemade pasta, but some of the recipes were pretty overwhelming and seemed like they'd take forever or were meant for canning. And I wanted some sauce now... like right away for dinner. So, I thought I'd see what would happen if I plopped some plum tomatoes and this and that into the food processor and just saw what happened. Well, What happened was Itallian yuminess across the board! You will need 5 medium plum tomatoes *** 1/4- 1/2 cup of water *** 2 tbs of olive oil *** handful of fresh spinach *** some itallian seasoning (ach-- i was out of fresh basil, but a tsp of dried was still a culinary delight) *** and optional, a few roasted peppers or if you were roasting it yourself, 1 pepper roasted. Puree or chop all together. And done-- less than 2 minutes to really good homemade pasta sauce. I cooked it up and added some parmasean cheese on top and then just placed it on cooked homemade spaghetti-- it was out of this world yummy!!
