Healthy Pasta Sauce 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Every cook needs a good recipe for marinara sauce. This one can be prepared in less than an hour and used in many ways. It is traditionally served over pasta, but is equally delicious with polenta or rice. It also makes a wonderful sauce for grilled vegetables or baked tempeh or tofu. We don't need to remind you that tomatoes cooked with oil provide a source of lycopene, one of the carotenes linked to protection from prostate cancer.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and finely grated
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste 1 large can (28 ounces) Italian tomatoes, crushed
1 large can (12 ounces) tomato paste
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons dried whole basil
1 teaspoon dried whole oregano
Pinch fennel seeds
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
4 cloves garlic, chopped


Directions:
1. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven or saucepan (do not use cast iron or aluminum) over medium-high heat. Add the onions and carrot; sauté until the onions are translucent.

2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well. Bring just to a boil, lower heat, and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until desired thickness. Remove the bay leaf.

3. Serve with your favorite pasta or polenta.

Wellness Tip
Granola Bars
Many granola bars might not be as healthy as they seem. According to registered dietitians, some contain large amounts of sugar, saturated fats and calories. Look for bars that have no added sugars and are high in fiber. For a quick and easy alternative, fill a small sandwich baggie with whole grain cereal, mixed with nuts and dried fruit. While you still have to watch calories, the fiber and nutrient content of this snack is a sure bet.

’Tis a Grand Soft Day, Thank God
We had a Orange alert in Ireland due to storm forecast and my sister Roisin came across this explanation of Irish rain which i just loved. If you live in Ireland or have visited you’ll know what Colm Toibin is writing about here. If you live in Texas this will most likely be new to you! ‘If the Inuits have fifty words for snow, the Irish have about a hundred variations of ‘Shite, I’m after getting soaked’.
