Reducing our grocery budget continues to go pretty well and I sure have enjoyed the abundance of tomatoes, peppers and fresh basil from my garden. Here's another super-yummy, super-healthy, super-fresh recipe to wet your appetite. Please note that I am not very specific on my measurements. I want to encourage you to experiment and have fun discovering your creativity in the kitchen!
Red Pepper Basil Spaghetti Sauce
15 (or so) roma tomatoes (or any tomatoes you like)
1 can of tomato sauce
4-6 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 T olive oil
1 red pepper
1 T (or so) red wine vinegar
1/2 large onion chopped
handful of fresh basil leaves
dash of red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
pasta of your choice (we use gluten-free)
ice bath for the sauce before refrigerating.
Serve with your favorite pasta and top with grated parmesan cheese. YUM.
