This is the last part of a series of recipes I’m sharing that I wrote for a single mom back in college. I met her while working at Starbucks. She was one of our semi-regular customers. She was looking to cook some healthy meals for her kids, but wasn’t sure where to start. So I offered to share a few recipes with her. Some of them were recipes I already had, and some were new ones I wrote for her.
Today, I am sharing a recipe for Arrabiata Sauce, which is a spicy tomato sauce.
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ bunch fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 28 ounce can tomato puree
- 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
- fresh basil, chopped
- fresh oregano, chopped
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup red wine
- 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
In a sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and parsley and sauté until the onions turn translucent. Remove to a heavy bottom pot or Dutch oven. Add the remaining ingredients. Under low heat, let simmer covered for 6 to 8 hours, stirring occasionally. To finish sauce, puree with an immersion blender or in a conventional blender, until it is mostly smooth.
