Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 Ripe Tomatoes
    1 Onion
    1 Green Pepper
    3 Garlic Cloves (minced garlic works also works well)
    2 Jalapeno Pepper (Adjust pepper amount and type to taste)
    1 6oz can No Salt Added Tomato Paste
    1 Tbsp Parsley
    1 Tbsp Oregano
    2 Tbsp Basil
    1 Tsp Salt
    1 Tsp Sugar
    1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Tips

I usually use a hotter pepper and add red pepper flakes while sauteing the vegetables.

Prepare a day before for even better flavor

Great for jarring for use later


Directions

- Skin and seed tomatoes (cutting a small "x" in the bottom of the tomato and boiling for a few minutes help to remove skin)

- Cut onion, green peppers, and jalapeno into small chunks and crush garlic
- Heat olive oil and saute cut onions, green peppers, and jalapeno until onion becomes translucent
- Add garlic; be careful to not burn

-Blend tomatoes, tomato paste, and sauteed vegetables until smooth

- Add sauce to saucepan and stir in remaining dried ingredients
- Heat covered over medium heat for approximately 30 minutes--stir occasionally
