Easy Pasta Sauce

Just have to share this. After Jemarie and I both ruined making soup on Sunday and used up all the groceries we bought the day before. Desperately hungry we looked around and saw a bowl full of freshly picked tomatoes…. in agreement, PASTA. We made tomato sauce with what we had: grapeseed oil, garlic, dried red peppers, dried herbs, lemons, and tomatoes.


There are no exacts, that is how easy this is. I am guess-timating the amount…Recipe below:

  1. Pour a little grapeseed oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Use whatever oil is in the cabinet.
  2. Chop up 4 cloves of garlic. Toss in.
  3. Throw in 2 tsp. of dried red peppers and add your favorite Italian herbs.
  4. Dice a lot of tomatoes. I used between 11-13.
  5. Bring to a simmer and squeeze half a lemon into the sauce.
  6. Cover, bring down to low and forget about it. Stir every now and then.

We seriously watched a football game and stirred during commercials. It is by far the best pasta sauce I have ever had in my life. It had no cheese, no dairy. After the game we mixed it with noodles cooked with olive oil and seasoned with salt/pepper, then topped it with fried sweet potatoes. Life. So good, we made it the following Monday. ❤
