Day 65: Marinara Sauce

I know I've mentioned spaghetti with a red sauce many times in my blogging activities but it's a classic. While in Texas on my mission we met a family that had spaghetti every Wednesday night. I love that idea! Spaghetti is a no brain-er. Quick, easy, delish! Here is a super easy recipe for Marinara sauce, or red spaghetti sauce. It's basically just blend and heat. It's way yummy and you know what's in it instead of trying to pronounce all those ingredients on the back of the label. Plus you can make a bunch and freeze it at a price that is a lot less than buying pre-made sauce from the store. Plus, you can use this on a lot more than just spaghetti! Try it as the base for your next pizza or as a dip for bread sticks.

Marinara Sauce
1 can tomatoes
1 clove garlic
2 tb dried parsley
1/2 tb Italian seasoning
1 pinch sage

Place everything in your trusty food processor and blend till smooth. When your pasta is finished throw the pasta and sauce together in the pan to coat with some olive oil. Top with an extra sprinkle of dried parsley and you'll look gourmet!
