Today I made a quick pasta sauce, using ingredients I had on hand. I can't tell you how delightful it smells. At first I couldn't figure out what taste it was missing, and then I hit on it: bell pepper. So friends, here is my pasta recipe! We had it with veggie meatballs and whole wheat spaghetti.
2 cans stewed tomatoes with basil and oregano
2 cloves garlic
2 leaves fresh sage
2 tbsp. fresh rosemary
2 tbsp. fresh thyme
1/8 cup olive oil
1/4 cup roasted red and yellow bell pepper (I had some in a jar, but you can easily make your own)
Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, in a blender and blend until smooth.
Heat olive oil in a sauce pan and add in your blended ingredients. Simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve warm with your favorite pasta!
