Quick Tomato Sauce - Twiins Style

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: Easy

Don’t have time to make a pot of tomato sauce? This quick and easy sauce can be made in no time at all with staple ingredients from your pantry.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian stewed tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon EVOO
  • 2 frozen Dorot garlic cubes
  • 2 Tablespoons Hunt’s Italian style tomato paste with garlic & basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning (more or less to taste)
  • Immersion blender

    Directions

    1. In a small saucepan on medium heat, heat the oil and add the garlic cubes. Sauté until fragrant, about a minute.
    2. Add tomato paste and stir well for a minute. Add the stewed tomatoes and stir well until the tomato paste is blended.
    3. Add 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning and simmer for 10 minutes. Using an immersion blender right in the saucepan,  purée the tomato mixture and simmer another 5-10 minutes.

    Note: Makes enough sauce for our Baked Stuffed Eggplant & Sardines (4) plus a few spoonfuls to top spaghetti.
