PERFECT PASTA SAUCE:
I know that I can buy pre-made pasta sauce at the store, but I love making sauces from scratch. It's like therapy for me, not to mention that homemade sauce is healthier and cheaper. Throw this together in 10 minutes, and let the flavors soak together on the stove for a few hours or so.
This makes a lot of sauce, but it will keep for awhile as long as you keep it refrigerated. Feel free to cut this recipe in half if you don't want to make as much.
2 28 oz. cans crushed tomatoes
1 medium yellow onion, half quartered (see below) and half thinly diced
1/4 cup white cooking wine
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp Smart Balance buttery spread
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
Pepper, to taste
1. Add all ingredients to a large pot. Bring to a boil, stir, cover, and reduce heat to low.
2. Simmer for 3 hours, until flavors have blended together. (Cook on medium-low heat for an hour and a half if you're in a hurry).
