Jay and I try to eat dinner at a reasonable time, but tonight we were hanging on the porch swing with a glass of red wine in hand. Simmering on the stove was Bob's Marinara. You know of him, he is Leslie's other half. It is a really great recipe that Jay and I love. I always serve it with Healthy Harvest whole wheat noodles, Caesar salad and garlic bread. YUM!
2T olive oil
2-4 cloves garlic, crushed
3 lg cans crushed tomatoes
1 sm can tomato paste
1 1/2 t oregano
1 1/2 t basil
2 t parley
1/4 cup sugar
Optional: onions, mushrooms, meatballs, sausage.....
Saute garlic in oil. Add all other ingredients. Simmer 2-3 hours.
Hint~ the sugar is the key (that little trick is from my grandmother).
By the time we did eat Pebbles was very tired
I must tell you about the much anticipated second book by Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns. I haven't picked up any knitting or needlepoint because I have been turning pages. I like to pass on a good book because it takes a lot to pull me away from my passions.
I highly recommend reading his first book if you have not already done so, The Kite Runner.
Have a great day!!!!
