What’s For Dinner? Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce

A Yummy, Healthy Dinner in Less Than 30 Minutes

This is such a quick dinner to make.  More or less what you see in the above picture is all you need.  I ‘borrowed’ this recipe from the “Chef At Home, Michael Smith”. Luv him.  He’s a tall drink of chef-a-licious water!

Anyhoo, I digress, here is the recipe.

Homemade Tomato Sauce

olive oil
1 onion, minced
about 6 cloves of garlic (peeled, but whole)
1 – 28oz can whole tomatoes
1 bay leaf
1 tsp oregano
salt, pepper
1 tbsp brown sugar (optional, but I added this on my own, it just ramps up the flavour)

  • Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil, until they just start to turn brown.  
  • Add tomatoes, bay leaf, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper.
  • Simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove bay leaf.
  • Put sauce in blender, and puree.

Voila!  Serve with whole wheat pasta, and dinner is ready, and healthy!  We also like to top it off with parmesan cheese, and a dollop of ricotta cheese!
