A simple marinara recipe for those of us with busy lives
Cut to me thinking to myself, "I can make home-made pasta sauce with my home-grown garden tomatoes." I have never made sauce before, but as per my usual thinking, "It can't be that hard." Apparently making pasta sauce is very time consuming, as I found out one Sunday afternoon whilst skimming the best recipes the internet had to offer. I don't really have time for this....
Thus was born the lazy woman's method to home-made pasta sauce. Grab your tomatoes and follow along....
13 large tomatoes
1/4 cup freshly chopped basil
1 head garlic or minced garlic
Stevia or stevia/sugar blend
First, wash your tomatoes. Pull off any remaining stems. Then put as many tomatoes as your blender can handle at one time in a blender. Blend on a chop mode or similar until tomatoes are cut up but not completely liquified. The "pulse" mode helps here. If you need to pour out the blended tomatoes and repeat, do so.
Let simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
