Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce with Crimini Mushrooms & Sauteed Veggies

Submitted by: CURVES_N_CURLS

Introduction

Sometimes I can't make something entirely from scratch, so I use canned tomato products to make something on the fly! This doctored-up sauce is great over fresh whole wheat pasta, and topped with shredded Italian cheeses. :) [Created 2009-04-19.] Sometimes I can't make something entirely from scratch, so I use canned tomato products to make something on the fly!

Directions

1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp. olive oil, garlic, and pepper over medium-high heat. Also add the dried Italian Seasoning to the oil at this time.
2. Add the onions and sautee for a few minutes, until they start to caramelize.
3. Next add the mushrooms, and sautee for a few minutes more.
4. Add the chopped peppers, and cook for a few minutes more.
5. Finally, reduce the heat a bit, and add the can of diced tomatoes and the can of pasta sauce. Simmer on the stovetop (uncovered) on low until some of the liquid reduces, and you have a thick-rich sauce - this may take 1/2 hour to an hour if you do it on very low heat.
6. Makes seven 'servings', each about one heaping cup-full each. Enjoy! :)
