Recipe, and goals

I’ve been making homemade pasta sauce lately, and it is so yummy. I wanted to share the recipe with you guys because even my kids eat it like it’s going out of style!

6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
6 large garlic cloves, halved and sliced
3 cans (28 oz) diced tomatoes
1-1/2 tsp salt
¾ tsp pepper
Basil, oregano to taste (fresh is good to use, but you don’t have to)

Cook oil and garlic in large pot over med/low heat until garlic softens 5-6 minutes. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, cook over low heat 30 minutes. Add basil, oregano, cook additional 30 minutes.

This makes a lot, and freezes well.

Note: I like to use 1 can diced tomatoes, and 2 cans of crushed tomatoes, then it isn’t too chunky. My kids are so picky!
