30-Minute Pasta Sauce

30-Minute Pasta Sauce

The aroma of homemade pasta sauce simmering on your stove will bring your family to the kitchen.  Then you can get them to set the table or stack the dishes (the ones in the sink) while they wait only a few minutes more for dinner.  Now, isn’t that a great plan?!

30-Minute Pasta Sauce (makes 3-1/2 cups):

¼ cup olive oil

1, 28-ounce can diced tomatoes

1 medium onion, finely diced

1/4 cup shredded carrots (chop coarsely, if needed)

4 cloves garlic, minced

¼ cup red wine

2 teaspoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

freshly ground pepper

Heat oil in medium saucepan.  Add onion, carrots and garlic, lower heat and cover for 5 minutes.  Add tomatoes, wine, sugar, salt and pepper.  Simmer for 20 minutes. (This is a great time to start cooking your pasta!).   When finished, use an immersion blender or food processor until well blended.  Serve on top of your favorite pasta or meatballs.  Enjoy!
