Mom's Quick Tomato Sauce

May 14, 2017

In honour of mother's day I am sharing one of my favourite recipes from my mom (although it was hard to pick just one). My mom has always been a great cook, so great that as a child I would get upset if I had to eat out for days (like when I went on overnight school trips). Crazy right?

My mom has always been great at making nutritious comfort food that is simple yet incredibly tasty. I am so grateful I had such a wonderful role model growing up and someone to teach me the tips and tricks to simple and healthy cooking. 

 

 

This tomato sauce is super simple and delicious (if you garden over the summer this recipe is a perfect way to use up all those cherry tomatoes).

 

Serves 4-6 people 

 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped

  • 1 tsp. chili pepper flakes

  • 6 cups, cherry tomatoes, cut in half (can use red, yellow or any other type)

  • 500 g pasta, spaghetti or bow ties (can be spelt, whole wheat, pasta of choice)

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped

  • Grated parmesan cheese, for pasta topping

Directions:

 

Add olive oil to a heated sauce pan

Add 3 gloves of chopped garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes

Add the hot pepper flakes and stir with wooden spoon (make sure the flakes don't burn)

Add 6 cups of cherry tomatoes (red or/and yellow), stir and season with salt/pepper

Sauté for 10 minutes (at this point break the tomatoes with the wooden spoon), continue to cook for and additional 3 minutes

Have your salted water boiling at this time and add your pasta (500g), cook as per package directions

Add ½ cup of fresh basil to pasta sauce, stir and remove from heat

Once pasta is cooked, add to sauce and mix together well

Top with grated parmesan cheese and enjoy (option to include some turkey/chicken meatballs as well).

 

Enjoy!  

 

Celebrate the amazing women in your life today.  Whether its a friend, mother, sister, grandmother, fur mom, spread the love. Happy Mother's Day ! :)

Until next time,
