The perfect sauce for lasagna, manicotti and all other pasta shapes! Also good on hot subs, over rice, mashed potatoes and veggie meats! Or serve it in appetizer bowls with hot toasted bread strips!
Makes 5-1/4 cups
3 T. Thrive Algae Oil
28 oz. can tomato puree
28 oz. can whole Italian plum tomatoes in liquid – crushed with hands in bowl till pulpy (I used San Marzanno)
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. dried basil, crushed
1/4 t. ground allspice
light sprinkling red cayenne pepper
3 T. liquid from jar of Kalamata olives
salt to taste
Combine all sauce ingredients in large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil, then reduce heat, partially cover and cook at slow boil for 30 minutes, or longer if you need to thicken it up a bit more.
Adjust for salt and set aside till ready to reheat and serve.
Notes: There’s a reason why we use Italian plum tomatoes, preferably imported – because they make a great sauce.
