Marinara Sauce

  • tomato
  • water
  • basil
  • parsley
  • onion powder
  • garlic (fresh minced)
  • salt
  • pepper

    1. Fill small saucepan with a few cups of water & bring to boil.
    2. Score skin of tomato in a few places with serrated knife.
    3. Blanch tomato in the boiling water for 1-2 mins.
    4. Immediately transfer tomato to ice water to cool and discard boiling water.
    5. Remove skin of tomato and discard skin.
    6. Preheat small non-stick saucepan over MED-HI heat.
    7. If want chunky sauce, crush tomato with your hands in saucepan (discard stem). If you prefer smoother sauce, puree tomato in blender or food processor then add to pan.
    8. Add garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper.
    9. Bring to low boil, then immediately reduce heat to low, cover & simmer for 15 mins, stirring often to keep tomato from sticking.
    10. Turn heat up to MED.
    11. Add parsley, more garlic, and basil.
    12. Cook 5-10 more minutes, stirring constantly. While cooking, start adding water 1T at a time until it reaches your desired consistency. I usually end up adding 3-4T of water.


    NOTE: Add any spices that you prefer to this. I don't really measure them, I just toss in a bit of each.

    Meatballs

  • 100g steak (ground into hamburger)
  • 1 grissini (ground into powder)
  • 1 T milk
  • parsley
  • onion powder
  • basil
  • oregano
  • garlic
  • salt
  • pepper

    1. Preheat oven to 425.
    2. In bowl, combine all ingredients.
    3. Form into 1" meatballs (makes about 6-7).
    4. Place in baking dish or non-stick baking sheet and cook 10 minutes turning halfway through cooking time.


    TIP: I usually use a glass baking dish to make these as they seem to want to stick less. Also, if you want to brown them more after cooking, you can broil them for 1-2 mins each side.

    These also can be frozen in a freezer bag and then warmed up before serving. Makes a great quick meal!
