BASIL GARLIC MARINARA PASTA
Ending pasta week with a classic that is SO simple but seriously so good. Making my own marinara sauce has been SUCH A GAME CHANGER. It is SO easy and sooooo much better then any store bought jar.
Basil garlic marinara Pasta
1 lb pasta noodles of choice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tbsp cane sugar
1 tsp chili pepper flakes
28 ounces canned whole tomatoes
1 bunch fresh basil
1.Bring a large pot of water to a boil, generously salt the water then add pasta noodles and cook according to the directions on the package.
2.Add the olive oil, garlic and onion to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook while stirring for about 5 minutes until the onion and garlic begin to soften… be careful not to burn!
3.Add salt, sugar, chili pepper flakes, tomato paste, tomatoes. Stir every few minutes and begin to break down the tomatoes by mashing them with a wooden spoon. They will begin to soften as you cook.
4.Simmer for 15-20 minutes until reduced and the tomatoes are mashed down. Taste as you go and add more sugar and salt to your preference. Transfer everything carefully into a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds. You can keep slightly chunky if you would like or blend longer for a smoother sauce.
5.Return sauce back to skillet and bring to a simmer. Chop fresh basil, add to sauce then add cooked pasta noodles. To serve top it off with nutritional yeast, vegan parm or extra chili pepper flakes.
