It’s Monday, my FAVORITE day of the week! This one was going to be especially fantastic, because my family was scheduled to arrive here in Maui, yesterday. After long delays and flights being moved around and cancelled, they aren’t arriving until tonight! I was totally bummed, driving home from the airport yesterday without them, but it gave me the opportunity to spend today doing homework, finishing laundry and making a delicious spaghetti dinner for my husband and I.
I’ve been making this marinara sauce for about a year now. I was tired of buying jarred sauces, they’re expensive and not really that tasty or good for you! I had some extra zucchini left over that I needed to use up so I added it in, making it even healthier.
Recipe as follows:
- 32oz can of Organic Crushed Tomatoes
- 1 Yellow Onion
- 3 cloves of Garlic
- 3 T Italian Seasonings
- Handful of fresh Basil
- 1 Zucchini sliced
- Organic Spinach Spaghetti Noodles
- 2 T Olive Oil
- Shredded Parmesan to top finished meal
Dice Onion and slice zucchini, and add to medium heat skillet with 1 1/2 T Olive Oil and 2 T Italian Seasonings. Let cook until onions are soft, about 5-7 minutes, then add 2 cloves of garlic, chopped, and let cook for another minute, making sure to not burn garlic. Add Tomatoes and the rest of the italian seasoning, let simmer for 10 minutes. Add fresh chopped basil, and let simmer for 5 more minutes.
For the noodles, just cook as package suggests, but I add 1/2 T of Olive oil and 1 clove of garlic to my water to add more flavor.
SIMPLE & DELICIOUS! Enjoy!
