Tomato Sauce

I don’t even know the last time we bought pre-made tomato sauce. After realizing how easy it is to make and how healthy it can be, we just can’t justify buying it!

What you need:
1 can no salt added diced tomatoes, mostly drained
1-2 cloves of garlic
A handful of fresh basil
1 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp white sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup red wine (optional)

Place the peeled garlic cloves and basil in a blender or bullet (we use our bullet all the time, love it!). Blend until finely chopped, then add all other ingredients (except wine), and blend until combined (good chunky or very smooth).

Place in a small pot, add the red wine if desired, and cook about 10 minutes to eliminate the raw garlic flavor. Great as a dipping sauce, on pasta, on pizzas, in calzones, etc! ENJOY!
