Tomato Sauce
Istock/Oriba

When the weather is constantly miserable during the winters in New York, I am all about being cozy and versatile in my cooking and eating. Over the weekend, I made a delicious and uber-easy tomato sauce that is the perfect dish for keeping all my kitchen constituents happy: the kids always want a yummy pasta, check; my husband wants something healthy and different, check; and, I usually want to watch my waistline, but don’t always want not make two (or even three!) completely different meals, check and check! 

I made this sauce in less than 30 minutes, the kids loved it on top of pasta, and I quickly broiled some filet of sole and topped it with the sauce for the adults.  Easy as pie for me and delicious for all!  Love that! 

Note: This ages very well, so make in advance or get two meals out of it!  It’s delish on chicken cutlets as well!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 small onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, but oh so good if you want more zing)
  • 2 pints of grape tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup basil, chopped

DIRECTIONS

Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.  Add the garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add the onions and red pepper flakes if using and continue sautéing, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes more or until onions are golden. Add the tomatoes, stir to combine and let simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the tomatoes cook down a bit. Add the basil, stir to combine, then serve.
