Hi Tasty25ers! I’ve got a great new recipe for our food conscious community today that includes fresh tomatoes, oregano, basil, garlic, and much more… It’s my 10 Minute Homemade Pasta Sauce! It’s full of fresh, delicious ingredients, and goes perfectly with whole grain pasta or spaghetti. Store bought sauces can contain high amounts of sodium, fat, and artificial ingredients that are counterproductive to a healthy nutrition lifestyle; so instead of going to the supermarket or grocery store and buying an expensive, processed pasta sauce, be food conscious and give my recipe a try! And don’t forget that I LOVE to receive pictures of people who make the recipes on our site, so send ’em my way at email@example.com. Let’s be food conscious, share the gift of healthy nutrition with our friends & family, and Happy Cooking! – David Jones II, Editor of Tasty25 Magazine
What you need:
3 Cups finely chopped tomatoes
1 Tbsp. oregano
1 Tbsp. basil
1 Tbsp. cilantro
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tsp. sea salt (Separated into individual teaspoons.)
Black pepper (To taste.)
Directions: (Approximate cook time: 10 minutes; Serving size – 2-4 adults)
First, heat the olive oil in a saucepan, and sauté the garlic and 1 Tsp. of salt for 30 seconds.
Next, take your finely chopped tomatoes and add them to the saucepan; You’re going to bring the liquid to a fast simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.
After it simmers for a bit, blend or chop up the tomatoes. You can use a hand blender to coarsely puree the tomatoes, use a large spoon to mash them up right in the pot, or transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor fire a fine & smooth texture.
Season to taste with the remaining Tsp. of salt, and add your oregano & cilantro; You’re going to continue mashing or pureeing the tomatoes until the sauce is coarse but smooth.
Simmer your sauce for another 2-3 minutes, then add your basil and black pepper to preferred taste.
Finally, bring stovetop to low heat, and cover until you’re ready to serve!
Eat & enjoy!
