The recipe mentions, that this sauce can be used as marinara over pasta..but I personally think it wouldnt hit the mark, on pasta. You need fresh tomatoes for a good marinara sauce. Tinned stuff dont quite make it there. But of course, if you fall in love with this sauce, go ahead..pour over some pasta and have a good time.
Here's how it is made..
Serves: Makes almost 3 cups of sauce
1 can tomato paste (6 ounces)
1.5 to 2 cups water
1/3 cup olive oil
4 to 5 cloves of garlic, grated
Salt to taste
2 tsp ground black pepper
1.5 tsp oregano
Step 1 - In a bowl, add the tomato paste, olive oil and water. Mix well till all the liquids combine well.
Step 2 - Add the salt, pepper, oregano and garlic. Mix well.
Real easy right?
In the picture above, I have smeared this sauce over some sliced english muffins. Have topped it with onions, bell peppers, corn and of course some cheese. Baked in a 350 Deg. F. oven for 13 - 15 mins or till the base looks crusty on the sides. Makes a great appetizer for a party.
You can adjust the quantity of garlic as per your liking.
Any kind of dried italian herbs would work in this recipe. I had oregano at home and so I used it. If you have rosemary or basil or even assorted just add it in. It may change the flavor a bit, but will still be yum!
