Wednesday is our busiest day of the week, which is why it’s pasta night. Boil some noodles, open a jar and dinner is done. I planned on tortellini, but didn’t realize that I was out of sauce until the water was boiling, so I mixed one up in less than 20 minutes. It was delicious.
20 Minute Pasta Sauce
- 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes (I used Trader Joe’s Organic Tomatoes, Diced in Tomato Juice, and they were exceptionally sweet.)
- 2 cans tomato paste
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 2 large cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. basil
Keep in mind that I never measure when I throw these things together. The fun is in imagining the flavor, adding something, tasting and adding until you like it. When I was done I wrote down approximately what I put in the sauce.
