Do you make your own sauce? If so please do share.
one of my favorites, i make it all the time:
- 6 roma tomatoes
- 2 cans(the small ones) tomato paste
- 1 fresh garlic clove, minced
- oil oil
- fresh basil, chopped
- onion powder
- S & P
- red pepper flakes
- 1/2 of a roasted red pepper(marinated), diced
combine the tomato paste with approx 32 oz of water(i eyeball it so im not exactly sure) and bring to a boil while stirring constantly. once it combines reduce to a simmer.
take 3 of the roma's and dice them. add them to the sauce. then peel the other 3 roma's, crush them, and add them to the sauce. Add more water until the sauce has a thin yet not watery consistency. let simmer for at least another 15-20 minutes, or until some of its strong tomato taste has left.
add in the basil, oregano, oil, garlic, onion powder, and oregano along with S & P to taste. increase the heat and stir constantly for 3 to 5 minutes. add in the red pepper flakes(start with a teaspoon and add until you get the desired amount of 'heat' in your sauce). add the red peppers. add water if need to regain thin consitency.
toss with pasta.
