Easy MarinaraPosted: June 26, 2012
DT had leftovers from grilling Sunday evening, so I was kind of on my own for dinner last night. We desperately need to do a major grocery store run, so I had to get a little creative and work with ingredients we had on hand. As it turned out, it was an easy – and delicious – thing to do.
I had frozen tomatoes that needed to be used so I whipped up a quick and easy Marinara sauce to put over pasta.
I started with the tomatoes, garlic, and pepper – sauteed over medium heat.
It’s getting nice and saucy….
I chopped up the oregano….the smell is heavenly.
I added the oregano and a few spoonfuls of spaghetti sauce.
Marinara – complete:
A healthy-sized bowl of pasta….
….with an equally healthy dose of Parmesan to top.
It was good. It was so very, very good. Chunks of tangy tomatoes, earthy oregano flavor, and the presence of garlic….one cannot go wrong with this mix.
In other news….I found this in the front planter:
When they say “robin egg blue” they mean robin egg blue!
I also picked the lone red tomato – don’t want some little critter stealing my garden’s one piece of ripe produce.
It’s too pretty to eat so for now I’ll just admire it.
How’s your Tuesday?
