Anyway, I used to make the sauce more often than he did so I'm no stranger to the process. Like usual, though, I'm always looking for a faster way to get dinner on the table. I decided to make up a quick version for weeknight dinners when we really want tomato sauce, but don't have any in the freezer.
30 Minute Marinara (Weight Watchers = 3PP per serving)
makes 6 servings
- 2 T olive oil
- 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 6 oz can tomato paste
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 3/4 cup onion, diced
- 1 T Italian seasoning
- 1 t basil
- Saute the garlic and onion in olive oil for 2-3 minutes in a large frying pan.
- Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, and seasoning and stir well.
- Simmer on medium-medium low heat for 25 minutes.
You can serve this over warm pasta, use it in a baked pasta dish, or even use it as pizza sauce. It's not quite the same as Doug's regular version of sauce, but it certainly did the trick for a mid-week dinner.
Do you make your own sauce, or do you stick to jarred sauce? If I get jarred sauce, I like to get one of the Muir Glen varieties. I love their tomatoes!
