Easy Homemade Pasta Sauce October 31, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — craftybalancing @ 5:07 AM

This is a wonderfully healthy and easy recipe from my new favorite cookbook The Sneaky Chef.

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 onion, finely minced or pureed

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup Orange Puree

1/4 cup White Puree

1 can, about 28 ounces, whole peeled tomatoes with liquid

1 6-ounce can tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper

Cook onions and garlic in a saucepan with oil over medium heat.  Cook until they are translucent but not brown.  Mix in the Orange Puree and White Puree, tomatoes and tomato paste and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until sauce thickens (I didn’t have to wait nearly 15 minutes because it started off fairly thick).  Transfer sauce to a blender and puree until smooth

Stir in salt and a few grinds of pepper, to taste.  You can refrigerate this for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 6 months. 

I have personally tried this and think it tastes great!
