Red Pasta Sauce

You will need…

3 large cans of tomato sauce (or five little ones)

1 can of diced tomatoes (optional)

1 onion

Fresh basil

A head of garlic

Spinach (frozen or fresh)

Penne pasta (or whatever kind you like)

Ricotta cheese

 

Add the cans of tomato sauce/diced tomatoes to a pot. Turn to simmer. Stir occasionally.

Chop about 3/4 of the onion up and add to the pot.

Chop up about 4 to 5 chunks of garlic (that’s a lot of garlic, but we love it!) and throw into the pot.

Chop up about 5 basil leaves and 8 or 9 spinach leaves and throw into the pot. If using froze spinach, just eyeball it.

Add needed spices along the way. I used garlic salt, sea salt, red pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, and basil (dried).

Boil the pasta noodles until done to your liking.

Toward the end of the noodles, add a few scoops of ricotta cheese into the sauce. Allow to melt fully.

Throw the noodles into the sauce (after draining) and garnish with a basil leaf!
