10 Minute Pasta Sauce

The shelves are still empty. Yes, at the store, but I am talking about my own pantry. I slacked the last two years canning and it shows! Not a tomato jar in sight. The pasta sauces at the store are sub-par, in my opinion, and my own are gone. This pasta sauce is fast and delicious. So much so that I think I will stop canning spaghetti sauce and start canning crushed tomatoes!

Just Like You Been Cookin’ All Day Pasta Sauce

Pour a few tablespoons of great olive into a pan.

Saute two or three cloves of minced garlic for a few minutes.

Pour in a 28 ounce jar of crushed tomatoes (I typically love Muir Glen tomatoes plain, but this is all that was on the shelf and it works just fine.)

Pour in a splash of good red wine.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Let simmer while the pasta cooks, stirring often.

This sauce is delicious topped with Violife “Parmesan.” If you haven’t tried it, it’s a game changer. Never a better time to go vegan.

Hurray pasta!
