This is a marvelous marinara that’s easy to make and tastes great. I like to serve it over whole wheat pasta with turkey sausage. Just whip up a green side salad and you’ve got a complete meal. You can prepare this sauce in advance so you can enjoy it on even the busiest of week nights. This recipe will make enough for 8 servings of a half cup each.
2 medium onions, chopped
5 to 7 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 (16 oz) cans Italian plum tomatoes, drained and chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup tomato paste
Squeeze of fresh lemon, about 2 Tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until tender.
2. Stir in tomatoes, wine and tomato paste.
3. Heat until boiling.
4. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
5. Add lemon, salt and pepper.
Low in calories and fat, tomatoes and garlic are full of antioxidants that help to protect cells from the effects of free radicals. Easily digestible, tomatoes work well with proteins, too. Important for women’s fitness and health, sauces cooked with olive oil and seasoned with lemon are much lower in cholesterol than other oils and flavorings.
